Dance < Back to list


For this season, the Teatro Real once again programmes the Compañía Nacional de Danza. Under the leadership of José Carlos Martínez who has been at the helm for more than five years now, we see a multi-faceted national dance company of guaranteed success. It has the capacity to combine repertory pieces by the most well-known choreographers of our century, creations by Spanish artists, neoclassical works and others of a more academic approach. The performances at the Teatro Real during the month of April will be a tribute to William Forsythe.
