Apollo Theater In Collaboration With Ballet Hispanico Presents CARMEN.MAQUIA

Ballet Hispánico, the nation's premier Latino dance organization, returns to the Apollo stage with its celebrated CARMEN.maquia by Gustavo Ramírez Sansano on Friday and Saturday, December 7 and 8, 2018 at 8:00pm. Ballet Hispánico is sponsored by GOYA, which has sponsored the company since 1977.

A Picasso-inspired, contemporary take on Bizet's beloved classic, the physically charged and sensual choreography fuses contemporary dance with nods to the Spanish paso doble and flamenco. Originally created for the Luna Negra Dance Theater of Chicago, CARMEN.maquia premiered in New York at the Apollo in 2014, the first full-length narrative dance work in Ballet Hispánico's nearly 50-year history.

"We are thrilled to return to the Apollo Theater with Gustavo Ramírez Sansano's CARMEN.maquia. We are committed to making dance accessible to all audiences with multi-cultural marketing efforts and low-cost ticket prices. We are happy to partner with the Apollo, once again, to make this goal come to fruition," said Artistic Director & CEO Eduardo Vilaro.

"We are thrilled to continue our collaboration with Ballet Hispánico; we feel their voice and presence is vital to this city's cultural landscape. They embody the epitome of artistic excellence," said Kamilah Forbes, the Apollo's Executive Producer.

"We are honored to sponsor Ballet Hispánico and value working with organizations who share the same mission in bringing communities together while celebrating the richness of our history and culture," said Rafael Toro, Director of Public Relations of Goya Foods.
