I saw Pinillos (with Filipa Castro) dancing the Don Quixote pas de deux at the Miami International Ballet Festival this past September.
The program notes mention that the Companhia Nacional de Bailado has been based since 2003 at the Teatro Camoes in Lisbon, and that:
The Artistic Director, Mehmet Balkan, started at the Natiional Ballet of Ankara (turkey) and has danced with the Royal Ballet and Hanover State Ballet, Royal Ballet of Flanders, among other companies.
While [it] has its own repertoire, the organization has promoted with Teatro Camoes an active collaboration with other dance companies and entities. Teatro Camoes, well known as the "Theater of Dance," works to create a diversity of programming it considers essential to the creation of a large and loyal audience.
Pinilllos' bio was as follows:
Mr. Pinillos is Spanish and was born in 1977. He studied at the Dance School Victor Ullate in Spain. He began his professional career in 1995 with Victor Ullate Ballet ofSpain. In 1997, he became a soloist, and in 2000 a Principal Dancer. Mr. Pinillos recieved the Gold Medal in the Varna International Dance Competition and was a finallist in the International Dance Competition in Paris in 2000. He joined Companhia Nacional de Bailado in 2001 as Principal Dancer.

CNB has had a lot of turnover and turmoil in the past few years. They have a new artictic director which would make three in the last 5-6 years.
Update: Petranovic has returned to his native Croatia and is dancing with the National Ballet there.
