Featuring "Alegrías", a flamenco dance performed with the traditional bata de cola (dress with the long ruffled train) with Claudia Morena, the "Rumba Gitana" performed with Gypsy fire and passion, the classical dance "Sevilla", the "Muñieras" (a regional dance from Galicia), and for the first time "Martinete" danced by Eva Conti. A must not miss - Ricardo will dance a passionate, vibrant and sensual "Habaneras" (from Bizet's opera Carmen) in a duet with his "Carmen" (Krystina Cardenas) - and much more. Funded in part by the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation.
