Festival Flamenco Alburquerque 33 proudly presents El Sombrero, the new fantasy by Estévez/Paños y Compañía. This new production is inspired by the creative process of a key work in the history of Spanish ballet: The Tricorner Hat. From the creators: “The first idea of the Russian businessman Sergei Diaghilev was to create Le tricorne only with flamenco dancers (bailaores and bailaoras), but in the end, this first Spanish ballet turned out to be an encounter and a collaboration. It was created by Léonide Massine and the flamenco dancer Felix Fernández García played a great part in it. His role was fundamental in the staging of the show, the outcome being the meeting of flamenco dance and Spanish dances with classical ballet technique. Thus, flamenco art is placed within the framework of the avant-garde, captivating artists that were most ahead of their time.”
Winner of the Premio National de Danza 2019, U.S. Premiere.
