The Cuckold's Fair. Ballet in one act

Antonio Najarro, direction and choreography

At the beginning of the 1930s, a constellation of artists consisting of García Lorca, Rivas Cherif, Gustavo Pittaluga, La Argentinita and Alberto Sánchez created a work destined to revolutionise Spanish dance: La romería de los cornudos. With a storyline of popular origin and orgiastic overtones, this ballet combines traditional and avant-garde elements. In this production —the first incursion into the world of ballet in the Chamber Music Theatre format— Alberto’s original sceneography, preserved in the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (MNCARS) is reproduced to scale.
