Went to see the National Ballet of Spain in Barcelona tonight. The ballet wordlessly told the history of Spain and of dance styles in this two straight hour performance including a huge corps de ballet; full symphony; four classical, acoustic guitarists; and two singers. It is also an amazingly beautiful opera house! The passion of the music and the ferocity of the dancers were incredible. All sets were projected, abstract images as if in a dream. This experience was not an expense; it was an investment.
