Ballet Flamenco La Rosa Presents Verano y Humo – An original Flamenco Ballet inspired by Tennessee Williams’ Summer and Smoke

Art Show

The original and groundbreaking Flamenco work, Verano y Humo, by Ballet Flamenco La Rosa's Artistic Director Ilisa Rosal, is an international collaboration with stellar guest artists from Spain. Inspired by Tennessee Williams' Summer and Smoke, this is a not to be missed experience, as a great American play is interpreted in the language of Flamenco. With two vivid main characters that are polar opposites, the stage is set for drama. The principal themes of intense love and desire along with resulting loneliness and despair, make this work a challenge yet a perfect fit for Flamenco's compelling arsenal of physical and emotional expression. There is ample opportunity for Flamenco's passion and force as well as the nuance and delicacy that it embodies at the same time. In the masterful hands of the dancers, musicians, choreographers and director that will collaborate to create Verano y Humo, Tennessee Williams' master work finds a new and compelling interpretation.
