From November 3rd to 7th, the Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève will be performing Romeo and Juliet at the Gran Teatre del Liceu of Barcelona, with Manuel Coves conducting the Orquesta Sinfónica of the theatre. Under the artistic direction of Philippe Cohen and with choreography by Joëlle Bouvier, the Swiss group comes to the Liceu with the ballet that Prokofiev composed for Shakespeare's story of impossible love.
After that, from November 9th through 13th, Manuel Coves will conduct Sorolla, by the Ballet Nacional de España. The dance company returns to the Teatro Real with one of its most recent choreographies, created by Antonio Najarro, the company's artistic director, and others. The inspiration for the work came from the collection 'Visión de España' by the painter Joaquín Sorolla. Music by Juan José Colomer, Paco de Lucía and Enrique Bermúdez, along with some popular songs, will be performed by the Orquesta Titular del Teatro Real.
Maestro Coves' future engagements include Electra, also with the BNE, at the Teatro de la Zarzuela and Don Quijote, with the Compañía Nacional de Danza, at the Teatro de la Maestranza of Seville.
