'El sombrero de tres picos' at the Granada Music and Dance Festival 2019

In 2019 is the centenary of Manuel de Falla's "El sombrero de tres picos" which was implemented in 1919. AC/E, the Manuel de Falla Foundation and the International Festival of Music and Dance of Granada commemorate the centenary of this great ballet by Manuel de Falla at the 68th edition of the Festival, which will be held from June 21 to July 12. Its implementation in 1919, brought together avant-garde and tradition with the novel by Pedro Antonio de Alarcón, the melody of Falla, the choreography of Leonide Massine, the company of the Russian Ballets by Serge Diaghilev and the designs of Picasso.

To this end, the international conference "Rethinking El Sombrero de tres Picos One Hundred Years Later" was organized between July 3 and 5 at the Palacio de la Madraza (University of Granada) and brought together international experts to present his latest research in the history of dance, musicology, history of art and philology, but also from other related areas, such as sociology, philosophy, anthropology, communication or fashion, related to this great work of art of the twentieth century.

Also the National Dance Company offers an exclusive representation of "The hat of three peaks" (1919) with the original choreography of Léonide Massine, who worked hand in hand with Manuel de Falla to create it, during the visits of the Ballets Russes de Diaghilev to Spain in 1916. The Festival commemorates with its staging 100 years of its premiere and will be seen with the designs that Picasso made for set design and costumes. The program is completed by works by two other Spanish choreographers, Sonatas, from the current director of the CND, José Carlos Martínez, and Por vos muero, by former director Nacho Duato, incorporated back into the company's repertoire. Martínez fable with the classic technique and the Spanish style on eighteenth-century music by Scarlatti and Father Soler, while Duato is inspired by the poems of Garcilaso de la Vega for his choreography, designed on Spanish music, also from the Golden Age.
