Antonio Ruiz Soler in our hearts

Called Antonio Ruiz Soler, in the 20th century he was known by the nickname is father gave him in Seville: “Antonio el Bailarín”. (Antonio the dancer) Why? because in Spain where his star shone so brightly, just mentioning dance was to think of this artist.

Hieratic, genius of great character, master of stylized dance, Antonio el Bailarín overstepped stages and, until his death in 1996, was a charismatic figure that ignited a passion for ballet.

His artistic mark remains to this day, for few others have defended Spanish dance as much as he did. With the show Centenario Antonio Ruiz Soler, the Ballet Nacional de España which is now directed by another Sevillian-Rubén Olmo- pays tribute to the master by recouping some of the choreographies which made him famous,

With the Real Orquesta Sinfónica de Sevilla in the pit, conducted by Manuel Coves -a native of Jaen ( Andalusia)- and a regular collaborator of the Compañía Nacional de Danza y del Ballet Nacional de España (National Dance and Ballet of Spain), eternal gems of Spanish dance return to the music of Soler, Albéniz or Sarasate.
