Description

Ballet San Jose presents The Toreador, a ballet in two acts by the legendary August Bournonville with new and re-adapted choreography by Flemming Flindt. Ballet San Jose is the only ballet company in the world which has this ballet in its repertory and will present it with full orchestra. All the costumes and scenery were constructed by Denmark’s Royal Opera House. The story revolves around the beautiful daughter of a Spanish innkeeper and her love for a brave and handsome toreador, whom she cannot bear to see in danger.
