This painting from 1915 forms part of Sorolla’s monumental work, “Vision of Spain” at the Hispanic Society. El Baile (The Cruz de Mayo, or May Cross), is a typical festive moment in Andalusia, in which the houses’ patios are adorned with flowers and with women dressed in beautiful flamenco dresses with embroidered shawls while dancing festive dances. This concert will recreate the atmosphere of a Sevillian private party at the beginning of the 20th century, with special attention paid to the costumes, accessories, festive and joyful music and dances.
This program has been organized in collaboration with the Fundación de Cristina Heeren de Arte Flamenco
