Dance at the Cinema: BODAS DE SANGRE/SUITE FLAMENCO
October 12, 2014
Teatro Real, Madrid
Recorded May 9, 2011
Antonio Gades took a huge step forward for Spanish dance with the creation of his ballet Blood Wedding, or Bodas de Sangre, based on the play by Federico García Lorca.
The dances with which Antonio Gades began his solo career in about 1963 were gradually shaped into the numbers that would become the Suite Flamenca five years later.
