38 dancers storm the stage in a night showcasing the best of Spanish dance.


Invocación features four works that cover the cornerstones of Spanish dance, from vibrant flamenco (De lo Flamenco) and traditional bolero (Invocación Bolera) to contemporary dance (Jauleña) and classical ballet (Eterna Iberia).

As one of the main cultural ambassadors of Spain to the world, Ballet Nacional de España (BNE) highlight Spain’s rich choreographic heritage. The National Ballet, founded by the Ministry of Culture in 1978, continues to set the standard for Spanish dance.

Artistic Director Rubén Olmo curates this all-encompassing evening of four pieces. De lo Flamenco is a tribute to the legendary dancer and choreographer Mario Maya. Olmo choreographs two works; Jauleña, performed by a different soloist from the company each night, and the colourful, ensemble piece, Invocación Bolera. Finally Antonio Najarro’s Eterna Iberia which features the signature elements of Spanish dance – castanets, the Spanish Cape, and the Cordobes Hat.
