Robert J Farr
MusicWeb International, June 2012

In this production with dancers of Compañía Antonio Gades, the balance of the emotions, allied to the variety of music, is particularly well thought through and realised. In his choreography, Gades, with his traditional ballet background, marries that art form and the traditions of the Andalusian flamenco to perfection. The use of the feet, shod in shoes with hard-capped toe and heel ends, is vital along with periodic rhythmic hand-clapping. Timing is all, particularly in ensemble where exactness is essential if cacophony is to be avoided and the emotions of the musical drama properly conveyed. In this performance manner and execution are perfect…The main soloists use very elegant costumes with that of the bullfighter being particularly striking. All seem appropriate, often spectacular as with the bullfighter…and very enjoyable. © 2012 MusicWeb International Read complete review
