ZAGUÁN & ALENTO

BALLET NACIONAL DE ESPAÑA
Antonio Najarro, director
Temporada 2018-2019 / Dance / Zaguán & Alento

Tradition and future in contemporary flamenco. A sublime spectacle of dance and rhythm

Zaguán and Alento, directed by Antonio Najarro, has earned the Ballet Nacional de España one of its greatest triumphs. The special magic of amenco joins hands with up-to-dateness in this exceptional show, which is based on tradition but bears recent innovations in mind. Theatres in Spain, France and Japan have enthusiastically acclaimed the blend of amenco, tango and jazz offered by the BNE with results that are fascinating to both eye and ear. The title the company has chosen to mark its return to the Liceu, after the success of Sorolla in 2015, combines loyalty to tradition with exciting ventures along new paths.
