Never again! Noche de Sabor claims to be a "fusion" of salsa, tango and ballet. It is definitely not! 80 % of the show time is taken by ballet, with 20% of everything else (which is 1 salsa,1 flamenco and 2 tango dances). I am a big fan of salsa and tango and was really disappointed to see so little of it and such a poor quality (especially salsa). In addition, the ballet itself was not a classical European school/performance which I am used to seeing. Moreover I really did not like the ballet dance staged with tango music. And the last thing - the curtain was going down after each dance and lights back on...besides the fact that there were no decorations...
Noche de Sabor (“Night of Flavor”) will feature an evening of Ballet, Flamenco, Tango and Salsa offering an evening of exotic fusion of classical dance and ballet fired up in the music of Ludwig Minkus, Manuel de Falla, Astor Piazolla and more! The program will include excerpts from the ballet Don Quixote, Tangos and Castilla (Flamenco).
The cast of dancers will include: Tatiana A’Vermond, Lukash Abrahamyan, Yoko Ambe, Genaro Diaz Caamal, Albertossy Espinoza, Maria del Rocio Franco Salto, Robson Tadeu Freire, Kristine Gregorian, Felicia Guzman, Jeff Klein, Eleanor Knabe, Philippe Leibzig, Aimee Lopez, Nicole Mathis, April Mcleod, Holly Mistine, Gabrielle Palmatier, Oscar Reyna, Arsen Serobian, Yesenia Serratos, Atsuhisa Shinomiya, Andee Speakman, Jessica Taylor and Steven Woodruff.
Guest Artists will include world renowned Tango dancer, Sergei Tumas, performing “Suga y Mysterio” and dancer Edgar Nikolian of Vienna State Opera performing “Quere.” In addition, Guest Artist dancers from Ballet Santa Barbara, Carrie Diamond, Director, will perform “Suenos Castillaños.”
