The National Ballet of Spain celebrates 40 years of artistic career, and in commemoration its director, Antonio Najarro, has created a show dedicated to the celebration of this event, collecting some of his most representative choreographies.
The chosen choreographies, the most usual ones in the BNE repertoire, have been selected following the programming criteria of Antonio Najarro, showing the four styles of Spanish Dance.
These works were programmed by the directors who have been part of the National Ballet of Spain, and created by great figures of Spanish Dance that have marked the history of this company, as well as that of the Spanish Dance.
Some of the works that can be enjoyed in the show are:
