With the purpose of disseminating dance by using different choreographic languages, the Compañía Nacional de Danza (CND / National Ballet Company) –under the leadership of Joaquín De Luz– returns to the Teatro Real with a three part programme that includes two works never seen before on the stage of the Plaza de Oriente: Apollo and Concerto DSCH. The first is a masterpiece by George Balanchine with the music of Stravinsky that premiered with the Ballets Russes of Diaghilev in 1928 in Paris, and which the CND shares with us now, as it was one of the first successes of the legendary choreographer and the musician.  For its part, Concerto DSCH  is a passionate exercise in emotion and drama that Alexei Ratmanski  translated from the vibrant score by Shostakovich – his Concerto for piano no. 2– for the stage of the New York City Ballet in 2008.  The programme concludes with an emblematic work, created by Nacho Duato in 2001 for the company: White Darkness, a choreography by the former Director of the CND (National Dance Company) which is a reflection about the world of drugs and its effect on social behaviour.
