Corella Ballet

Sp11-WEB-Angel-Carmen-Corella-longAfter having danced all over the world, Spaniard Angel Corella founded the first and only classical ballet company in Spain in 22 years: the Corella Ballet. Spanning the vast breadth of ballet music, Corella's company began their 2011 production with the classical Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1, and ends with a very modern selection by Michael Nyman, with some Spanish flavor mixed in between. He speaks with Frank Dominguez about his beginnings as a dancer, the Corella Ballet, and how heritage influences classical ballet in Spain.

Listen to Angel Corella speak with Frank Dominguez at the Spoleto Festival USA 2011.
