Madrid's El Prado Museum serves as the backdrop for musical performances by pianist Alicia de Larrocha, soprano Victoria de los Angeles, and guitarist Andrés Segovia who also doubles as our host on a tour of this famous building. Also seen is Spain's native art form, flamenco, as sung by Roque Montoya and danced by Coros y Danzas de España."--Container
