Latin American Ballet

Recommended Posts

Hola! I am planning a sabbatical July - December to travel to South America for a spanish immersion program. I will be sad to miss the fall season at PNB, but I am excited to explore ballet (and other classical music forms) during my travels. I plan to travel to Lima, Peru, Santiago, Chile, Mendoza, Argentina and Buenos Aires, AR.

Lucky for me, after several years closed for renovations, the Teatro Colon reopens May 24. Checking the website, the following ballets will be presented in 2010::

June 19-27: Kenneth MacMillan's Manon

Sept 05-12: Mixed Bill: Balanchine's Theme & Variations / Donizetti Variations with NYCB's Tiler Peck & Joaquin de Luz, plus Séptima sinfonía, choreographed by Vittorio Biagi

October 29 - Nov. 11

Le Corsaire, choreography by Anne Marie Holmes

Guest Artists Paloma Herrera and Marcelo Gomes of ABT

December 17 - 22

La Bayadere, choreography by Natalia Makarova

Guest Artists Alina Cojocaru (Royal Ballet) and David Hallberg (ABT)

In my head, I hear Ella Fitzgerald's version of "Dancing Cheek to Cheek"

heaven, I'm in heaven...

So...can anyone help me research options whilst in Lima, Peru and Santiago, Chile? I also understand Uraguay has a well regarded ballet company in Montevideo, but I haven't looked into it yet...
