Spanish Ballet’s flamenco gala

Dance fans get the chance to see one of Europe’s most accomplished troupes next month, when the Ballet Nacional de España offers two performances of a recently created choreography, “Invocación Bolera,” at Guadalajara’s Conjunto de Artes Escenicas.

This show is a tribute to the great masters of the Escuela Bolera, a genre which emerged in Spain in the 18th century out of the combination of Andalusian popular dances and academic dances. “It is one of the most distinctive, complex and unique styles of Spanish dance, characterized by the use of castanets,” the Ballet’s website says. The show also includes a special tribute to the dancer and choreographer Mario Maya (1937-2008), one of the great masters of Spanish dance.

The performances form part of the troupe’s one-month, seven-city  tour of Mexico, running throughout July.

Conjunto de las Artes Escenicas, Saturday, July 16 and Sunday, July 17, both at 6:30 p.m.  500-1,800 pesos. Tickets at boletos.conjuntosantander.com, or the Conjunto box office.
