In staging Lorca Tango based on the tragedy by poet Garcia Lorca The Blood Wedding the choreographers attempted to reconsider the “souls” of two different classical genres – tango and flamenco – and bridge up the dance heritages of Spain, Argentina and modern ballet.

The performance touches on the universal and timeless themes, conflicts and experiences… Love, passion, forbidden desires, death, pain – these are what the dancers and musicians fill the performance with to let us feel the mystics and magic of human senses.

Tango and flamenco sparkle on stage and this poetic alliance happens owing to virtuosity and brilliant professionalism of the dancers and musicians.

The production of Troilo Suite is dedicated to the great Argentinian musician Anibal Troilo – conductor, composer and performer, the man who became an idol and a myth already during his lifetime. He was proclaimed the best bandoneanist of all times thanks to the unique emotionality and sensuality of his performance. Legendary Astor Piazzolla began his career in Troilo’s orchestra.<br>

The premiere will be held in 2017 at Chekhov International Theatre Festival.
