Ballet by Victor Ullate. Music by Manuel de Falla.
This ballet is a new creation of the Victor Ullate pièce, created in May 28 1994 at the Maestranza in Seville. It follows the Vicente Molina Foix scenario. In this new creation, Ullate took the opportunity to not only change the choreography, but also light and costumes. Everything is much more inventive! In seeking to give more importance to light, he highlights the famous Andalusian singer Estrella Morente present throughout the plot. Written by Falla in the early part of the twentieth century, « Sorcerer love » has a strong Andalusian character. This Artwork takes us into the gypsy mysticism, approaching love in its most primitive and essential form. It tells the story of Candela, a gypsy whose love for Carmelo. She is haunted by the ghost of his former lover. A story of love and passion, tears and grief, sorcery and seduction, death and dancing. The choreography contains moments of great beauty, such as « bitter love song », « Fisherman Romance », « dance and song of the witch ». It should also be noted that in the present ballet three popular songs written by Manuel de Falla will be present: Nana and Polo Asturiana. A new version of « El Amor Brujo », different in form, but in its essence always eternal.
