Flamenco Passion


Passion and fire hits the stage as Flamenco dancers Rosana Romero and Adrián Santana team up with Flamenco guitarist Yago Santos and the City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong (CCOHK) for an emotionally-charged evening of Spanish music and dance to mark Valentine's day. The choreography is under the direction of internationally renowned Flamenco artist Nina Corti and the music by Rodrigo and Shchedrin is conducted by Jean Thorel.

Flamenco Passion

Praised by the South China Morning Post for their "spectacular performance and technical brilliance", Flamenco dancers Rosana Romero and Adrián Santana bring their intensity of interpretation once again to the fiery episode of Carmen in Shchedrin's Carmen Suite - a musical adaptation of the original tunes by Bizet, scored for five percussionists and string orchestra. Amazingly adept at both Flamenco and classical guitar styles, Spanish guitarist Yago Santos will bring the evening to a further climax with his rendition of Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez, danced Flamenco-style for the first time ever under the subtle direction of choreographer Nina Corti. Concierto de Aranjuez is one of the most iconic works of the Spanish music repertory. Inspired by the beauty of the gardens surrounding the Royal Palace of Aranjuez, the work evokes the sounds of nature and the old-world nostalgia of the 18th-century Spanish court. It is also memorable for moments of great joy and poignancy, depicting the intimacy of times Rodrigo spent walking through the gardens with his beloved wife. Also on the programme Yago Santos will be featured performing solo works for Flamenco guitar such as Solea por Bulerías and some popular Andalusian songs such as Ay yi morena arranged for orchestra and guitar by Brenton Langbein.
