“Flamenco Passion” performances will feature more than 40 dancers, musicians including guest artists in a fusion of classical, folklore, traditional, contemporary and Flamenco styles. The first half of the program will feature a world premiere ballet by Carlos Rodriguez, “Mar de Fuego (Sea of Fire)” honoring Dame Libby in the Flamenco contemporary style. The second half of the concert will be a tribute to Jose Greco's 100th birthday directed by former Greco dancer, first dancer and founding member of the National Ballet of Spain, Juan Mata. The tribute will feature all three of Greco’s children who dance: Carmela, Jose and Lola. This will be the first time since their father was alive that they are reuniting to perform. The performances will also conclude with Ensemble Español's critically acclaimed “Bolero,” choreographed by Founder, Dame Libby Komaiko.
