Suite Española 1963-1974

Under the name Suite Española, the Antonio Gades Foundation has put together a series of works that were in included in the repertoire of the Alicante-born dancer and choreographer. Before choreographing Bodas de Sangre, Gades' shows were divided in a first part with piece from this Suite Española, and a second part with the Suite de Flamenco.

 

Among them we find pieces from more significant works like La Muerte de Don Juan, taken from the ballet that premiered in 1965 in Madrid and whose main dance Gades added to his ballet’s repertoire. Pittaluga's La Danza del Chivato, one of the numbers included in Gades' shows from the start, also belongs to this Suite Española. They also included flamenco numbers like La Farruca, incorporated later into the Suite de Flamenco, and El Ensueño, Antonio's first choreography that he had already debuted, together with Alicia Diaz, in his years with the Pilar López Company.
