Goyo Montero Cortijo

Original title

Mariana Pineda

The traditional close relationship between Spanish and Cuban dance bore one of its innumerable fruits in this ballet, based on a work by Federico García Lorca.

In October 1992, the International Ballet Festival of Havana (Cuba) staged 'Mariana Pineda', a production designed and directed by the choreographer Goyo Montero for the Cuban National Ballet, with music by Luis Manuel Carmona and stage design and costumes by Pedro Moreno.
This is a free adaptation of the play of the same name by Federico García Lorca, which was first performed in the Goya theatre in Barcelona in 1927.
The plot revolves around the life of Mariana Pineda, the famous early 19th-century Spanish heroine who fought for liberal causes against the absolutism of the reign of King Ferdinand VII.
