Ballet Flamenco La Rosa, an international Flamenco company based in Miami, is pleased to announce the world premiere of La Dama Macbeth, a flamenco Ballet inspired by the great Shakespearian Tragedy Macbeth. Ballet Flamenco La Rosa brings to life the classic themes of ambition, passion, loyalty, betrayal, rivalry, righteousness and greed, using Flamenco as a language to interpret the characters and relationships in this great play.
This production will incorporate live music, created and arranged by guest guitarists and singers from Spain in collaboration with company dancers and choreographers. Artists from the U.S, Latin America and Spain, led by the world renowned master teacher, choreographer and soloist La Tati in the title role, and with one of Spain’s most sought after male dancers, Miguel Cañas, as Macbeth, bring to this production the spellbinding and earthy power of Flamenco dance at its best. With its spectacular footwork, precise athleticism and vibrant energy, Flamenco is at once sensual and spiritual, raw and refined, and filled with both restrained passion and electrifying release, making it a powerful language to interpret this timeless work.
Under the direction of Ilisa Rosal, a stellar cast of international artists will create the characters of Shakespeare’s drama. The production will debut on Sat. 5/01/2010 at the Gusman Center for The Performing Arts as part of the Miami Dance Festival.
