Andalusian melodies and rhythms combine with folk inspiration and magic tales in this Spanish-flavored concert featuring the internationally acclaimed Siudy Flamenco Dance Theater. First, listen to the spirited and virtuosic Alborada del gracioso. Next, guitarist Jose Luis de la Paz joins the Symphony to play Rodrigo’s beautiful, passionate Concierto de Aranjuez. Finally, Falla’s flamenco-inspired masterpiece El amor brujo (Love, the Magician) comes to rhythmic, vivid life in the Iowa premiere of the one-act ballet featuring Venezuelan dancer Siudy Garrido and members of her electrifying flamenco dance company. This innovative collaboration promises to be a thrilling evening of music and dance long remembered.
