We have seen many Wuthering Heights adaptations: film, theatre, classic ballet, opera, musical... As far as we know this is the first time Emily Brontë's opera has been turned into a flamenco choreography. The creator of the choreography and alma mater of the project is Fabiana La Tani, who leads the Ballet Andalucia, a French company doing Spanish classic flamenco (not global enough? Fabiana La Tani was born in Argentina, by the way).The production was premiered last June 8 in St Etienne. It was later performed in Lyon (September 21) and in October 12 in Neuville-sur-Saône but will be performed again  next November 23 at the Théâtre des Copiaus in Chagny.
