Flamenco Night - de Falla El sombrero de tres picos
Let yourself be carried away by the ballet suites of Manuel de Falla, Spain's most famous composer. El amor brujo (Bewitched Love) is about an Andalusian gypsy woman who is harassed by the ghost of her dead husband. Few other works are able to evoke flamenco culture so well, although El amor brujo does owe a large debt to Falla's encounters with Ravel, Debussy, Stravinsky and the Russian impresario Diaghilev. The latter commissioned the ballet El sombrero de tres picos (The Three-Cornered Hat), performed by his Ballets Russes with a set and costumes by Pablo Picasso. At Bozar, the orchestra and conductor Josep Vicent are joined under the blazing sun by the Catalan flamenco singer Ginesa Ortega and the virtuoso flamenco dancer David Romero.
