At the Corella Ballet Web site, I see they've listed City Center performances for March 15-21, 2010.

Wow! The City Center website doesn't have this yet. Nor does Corella give information about the planned program. This is definitely a story to follow.

I wonder if Corella will invite the Mariinsky's Evgenia Obraztsova as a guest? (ha-ha) Seriously - after last Sunday's display at the Mariinsky, I am not interested in Corella. I should be over my 'hissy fit' by the time that the City Center season rolls around, though. :unsure:

I am not interested in Corella. Good riddance, in my book.


What an extraordinary thing to say! Angel Corella has just created the first large scale classical ballet company Spain has ever had, a wonderful achievement when so many European companies are going to the wall and all you can do is whinge because he dropped your favourite dancer! Show me a male dancer who hasn't dropped his partner at some time. For the ladies of the ballet it’s an occupational hazard.

This will be a remarkable way of introducing Spain's new classical ballet company to the United States.

Corella has more than earned the love and loyalty of American ballet audiences. Now we have the chance to see what he and his artists have been able to achieve for Spanish ballet in such a short time.

I hope this will be a MAJOR cultural event for New York City and for the future of ballet both here and in Spain.

4mrdncr, will you be there? And, wouldn't it be great if CarolinaM and others from fotoescena can make it as well? Who else is planning on attending?

Here's the company website (English version):

And here's a review (with plenty of photos) of one of their recent productions.

I wouldn't expect it to show on City Center's website before September.

Sorry, folks, I've known about this for 3 months, though couldn't say anything until CB posted it, which they did last month on their calendar page. Anyways, if I'm not there, I hope my film is.

Yes! I hope some distributor realizes that pairing the first U.S. visit by AC's company and an extended run of the AC/Company documentary would make for great box office. :wallbash:

I can't wait to see some of our American dancers return from over the pond!

I'd love to see Ashley Ellis dance again!

Great minds think alike Carolina. From "Celaje" to "Bruch..." to "Clear", Ashley Ellis gets better and better. She is a beautiful dancer to watch and film, whether in class, rehearsal, or performance.

I hope those of you who follow this thread also know that 5 Corella Ballet dancers (M.Golding, N.Tapia, J.Gatti, A.Almeida, and H. Cornejo) are scheduled to appear in New York at the YAGP next week. I'll be there (physically at least; mentally, the headaches are so painful, I don't want to think about it.)

A release regarding the company's CC engagement:

CORELLA BALLET CASTILLA Y LEÓN

MAKES U.S. DEBUT

AT NEW YORK CITY CENTER

Season includes U.S. Premiere by Angel Corella

With Angel Corella, Herman Cornejo, Iain Mackay,
Adiarys Almeida, Carmen Corella, Natalia Tapia,
Kazuko Omori and Joseph Gatti

March 17 – 20, 2010

New York, NY, July 23, 2009 – Choreographer Angel Corella has announced the U.S. debut of Corella Ballet Castilla y León, March 17 - 20 at New York City Center. The engagement will feature the U.S. premier of String Sextet, Mr. Corella’s first choreography, performed to music by Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky. The four-performance engagement will feature three other pieces to be announced.


Corella Ballet features acclaimed dancers from around the world, including Principal Dancers: Herman Cornejo, Iain Mackay, Adiarys Almeida, Carmen Corella and Natalia Tapia; First Soloists: Kazuko Omori and Joseph Gatti and Soloists: Ashley Ellis, Mª José Sales, Cristina Casa, Kirill Radev, Fernando Bufalá and Yevgen Uzlenkov. Mr. Corella is also a Principal Dancer.

Corella Ballet Castilla y León was founded in April 2008 at the Royal Palace of La Granja in Segovia-Spain. Corella Ballet, under Angel Corella’s artistic direction, is currently the only classical ballet company in Spain. The company consists of 60 dancers from 12 countries: Spain, Cuba, United States, United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Ireland, Japan, Lithuania, Russia, Portugal, Argentina, the Republic of Georgia and Kazajstán. Corella Ballet Foundation projects include the creation of a dance school which will also be the base for future Corella Ballet dancers. One of the company’s missions is to provide a professional career for classical dancers in Spain, so that Spanish born dancers do not have to leave the country to further their careers, as Corella and many others have done. Corella Ballet’s wide repertoire incorporates classical, neoclassical and contemporary choreography.

Corella Ballet will play for four performances, at New York City Center, 55th Street, between 6th and 7th Avenues, according to the following schedule March 17 at 7:30, March 19 at 8 pm and March 20 at 2 & 8 pm. Tickets range from $25 - $75 (on sale at City Center on September 8, 2009) and can be purchased by calling CityTix® at 212-581-1212, online at www.nycitycenter.org <http://www.nycitycenter.org/> or at the City Center Box Office (West 55th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues).
