En el Abismo was inspired by what many consider the greatest gothic novel, creating a potent and vivid flamenco ballet, connecting with the timeless material to produce a new incarnation of the greatest tragic love story after Romeo and Juliet. The performances will take place on Saturday, May 14 at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, May 15 at 3:00 p.m. at Miami Dade College’s Koubek Center in Miami.
This production features 20 dancers and musicians, including six top artists directly from Spain. Celebrated musicians will create and perform original vocals and lyrics for the work. The story and characters expressed by the music and dance will come alive in a new and breathtaking way, adding another layer to this iconic work.
In the story of love, loyalty, betrayal, passion, cruelty, hatred, revenge, empathy, despair, two young lovers struggle against society and circumstance in a gothic tale that has held universal appeal since 1847. With its earthy strength, hypnotic athleticism, subtle nuances, and explosive energy, flamenco will tell this story in a new and mesmerizing way. Generations of audiences have been enthralled by this work as it speaks to our search to understand the essence of love, loss, life, and death.
