Original title

Elegía – Homenaje a Antonio

Years after his death, the dancer and choreographer Antonio Ruiz Soler, Antonio 'el Bailarín' received a well-deserved homage from his colleague in the profession, José Antonio Ruiz.

First performed in 2006 by the Spanish National Ballet, José Antonio Ruiz designed a choreography which recreated some of the most significant moments in the career of his predecessor at the head of the Ballet, the great Antonio Ruiz Soler, otherwise known as Antonio 'el Bailarín'.
The ballet features musical pieces by the composer Joaquín Turina, and is divided into two parts. The first is based on 'Ritmos', a choreographic fantasy in five movements for orchestra and piano (1927), for which there was no previous ballet version. The second, 'Danzas fantásticas' (1919), is a work for orchestra and piano in three movements with which José Antonio Ruiz recreates the golden age of Spanish classical dance, the 18th century.
