Spain’s national dance company, Ballet Nacional De España, makes a welcome return to London as part of Spring Dance at the London Coliseum.

For its performances at the London Coliseum, Ballet Nacional De España performs two of its best loved works.

Dualia was choreographed by two of flamenco’s hottest stars Rojo and Rodriguez, and explores the sensuality of looks and caresses through movement and music.

La Leyenda (The Legend) was choreographed by Ballet Nacional De España’s Artistic Director José Antonio as a tribute to the famous flamenco star Carmen Amaya who died in 1963. The piece portrays images from her life, from the slums of Barcelona to the glamour of performing on the American stage in the 30s and 40s.

During its 30 years, Ballet Nacional De España has performed in some of the most renowned theatres in the world and received some of the highest accolades including the Medalla de Oro al Mérito en las Bellas Artes, awarded to artistic director Jose Antonio in 2005 by the Spanish Ministry of Culture.
