2017-07-05

Manuel Coves will be the conductor of Carmen, the ballet choreographed by Víctor Ullate, with Eduardo Lao as art director and with lighting and stage design by Paco Azorín. The Carmen created by Victor Ullate “tells a story a century old but it does so with a new eye: contemporary, avant-garde, ground-breaking. An updated version of the mythical femme fatale.” This production can be seen at Los Teatros del Canal in Madrid from August 31st to September 17th, under the baton of Maestro Coves, who will be leading the Joven Orquesta de la Comunidad de Madrid.
In addition, at the same theatre, Manuel Coves will be conducting the Orquesta Verum in the Homenaje a Antonio Ruiz Soler by the Ballet Nacional de España. The production, which will run from July 21st to 30th, offers viewers a “selection of choreographies in which various styles of danza española are represented, through the brilliant creations of the great Antonio: Eritaña, Zapateado de Sarasate, Taranto (La Taberna del Toro), Fantasía Galaica and El Sombrero de Tres Picos.”
