The Embassy of Spain in Ukraine, National Kyiv Opera Theater and Lladró Porcelain present the world ballet classics The Three-Cornered Hat premier and ballet-themed Lladró Porcelain exhibition grand opening.
El sombrero de tres picos (The Three-Cornered Hat or Le tricorne) is a ballet choreographed by Léonide Massine to music by Manuel de Falla, commissioned by Sergei Diaghilev and premiered complete in 1919. It is not only a ballet with Spanish setting but the one that also employs the techniques of Spanish dance (adapted and somewhat simplified) instead of classical ballet. The story derives from the novella by Pedro Antonio de Alarcón (born in Granada) and tells about a magistrate infatuated with a miller's faithful wife attempting to seduce her.
