“It is essential to begin this commentary by noting that the “Electra” performed by the Ballet Nacional de España (BNE) is a truly splendid spectacle, and special mention must be given to the exceptional work of the company – especially that of the dancers – in bringing it to life. The audience in attendance at the premier at the Teatro de la Zarzuela felt the same, awarding it with a heartfelt ovation when the final curtain fell… Antonio Ruz’s choreography was powerful, particularly in ensemble moments, which moved with a great aesthetic sense and dominance of the stage.”
