Café de Chinitas at the Teatro de la Zarzuela

From the 17th to the March, 2006 to April, 2nd the Ballet Nacional de España, under the direction of its director José Antonio, is putting on a programme at the
Teatro de la Zarzuela
. The costumes and staging are inspired by Salvador Dalí.
In 1940, Dalí was responsible for the scenery and costumes for a flamenco show which took place in New York and which features “Federico García Lorca’s world of popular music
in the background”. José Antonio is actually quoted as saying:

Who would say no to uniting Dalí and Lorca through Flamenco?

It sounds like it could be a wonderful show and one that you shouldn’t miss if you’re in Madrid (I know I won’t!).

The second part, Elegía, is a personal tribute to Antonio Ruiz Soler, the legendary dancer who died 10 years ago. The show counts on the collaboration of Chano Domínguez y Grupo and Esperanza Fernández is the invited guest. The Madrid Regional Orchestra provides the music for the show.
