Last year they announced the creation of a new Classical Ballet Company directed by Victor Ullate. Also they said that Nacho Duato would have to leave the CND by next month of July. But the ministry of culture was changed and now they say that what they are going to do is to turn Duato's to a Classical Company.
At the same time it seems that there is a cummulated budget for the new company they foresaw to create of about 1.260.000 Euros . Article in Spanish http://www.larazon.es/noticia/2248-1-26 ... et-clasico
Why they don't leave Duato's as it is given the great work he has made during the 20 years he has been in front of the CND and they give the money devoted to classical dance to Corella Ballet?
In still not two years of existence CB has been able to stage a great Bayadère and at the end of the month they are presenting Swan Lake. Even knowing that Angel will not dance at any of the shows, tickets for the four evenings were sold out the very same day they were put on sale. The company already has a name, dancers are well known and admired: Herman Cornejo, Adyaris Almeida, Ashley Ellis, Fernando Bufalá, Natalia Tapia, Joseph Gatti, etc., etc., are very beloved by Spanish ballet lovers. Here it is the link to the company for further info. http://www.angelcorella.org/home2.html
You will soon have the chance to see how the company looks like, I'm really excited about them to perform in NY and also eager to see their Swan Lake in Oviedo.
Corella the brave, as they say, and also the generous I would add.
Will see what government decisions will be.
