The young, talented dancers of Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre perform two of ballet's most lyrical works: Sleeping Beauty and Paquita. With a sumptuous score by Tchaikovsky, a fairy tale plot of the triumph of good over evil and classical courtly style, Sleeping Beauty is the ideal production for Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's accomplished student dancers. Paquita is Petipa's virtuosic 1881 ballet about a young girl who saves the life of a young French officer, who himself is the target of a Spanish governor who plots to have him killed. A much-loved ballet that showcases the talents of its soloists, Paquita's choreography includes the famous Grand Pas Classique, the Pas de Trois and the Children's Mazurka. Learn More

I have seen many a Flamenco show, and have even seen the National Spanish Ballet in Madrid, but never had I seen Flamenco done with real Gipsy/Gitano flare... the speed of their footwork, the drama, the vocalization of the singers, the theatrics of it all, as authentic as the gipsies found dancing in the caves of the South of Spain. Simply superb. A visual banquet. Thank you UCLA and Spain's Ministry of Tourism.
Quotes & Highlights
“This is raw flamenco, full of power, fire and unbridled masculinity.” — The Daily Telegraph
Featuring Farruco, La Farruca, Barullo and La Faraona
Renowned for its dazzling footwork, powerful athleticism and passionate intensity, the legendary flamenco family, Los Farruco, features three generations of dancers- all direct descendents of their late patriarch and flamenco master, El Farruco. Led by his twenty-year-old grandson, Farruco, who is rapidly gaining a reputation for his fiery and virtuosic performances, the Farruco clan also includes El Farruco’s daughters, the highly respected La Farruca and La Faraona, and second grandson, the elegantly reserved Barullo. Accompanied by two guitarists and three singers, Los Farruco promises a mesmerizing evening of traditional gypsy dance and music.
