Clasico Espanol

A new and original evening! A big classical orchestra and a flamenco dance company on one stage!

COMPAS Dance Company and Israel Sinfonietta Beer Sheva  conducted by Maestro Doron Salomon in a show presents original choreography by Mijal Natan to ballets by the well-known Spanish composer Manuel De Falla.

De Falla was from the first national composers of Spain. He wrote chamber and symphonic pieces inspired by the Spanish folklore. De Falla has become a well-known composer and the ballets he wrote made him famous worldwide. The fascinating merge of modern music combined with rhythmic and structural elements of the Spanish folk music became his earmark.

Two famous pieces constitute the main part of the evening:

El Amor Brujo – “The Bewitched Love” – The story of a young woman left a widow by a treacherous husband; being haunted by his ghost, she is not free to enjoy the true love of another man who loves her since childhood.

El Sombrero de Tres Picos – “The Three-Cornered Hat” – The story of the ridiculous attempts of the general with the three-cornered hat, to seduce the beautiful wife of the miller.

The show also presents two dances from the opera La Vida Breve (“Life is short”).
