Four functions will be offered, the days 22, 23 Y 24 October, the latter in double session at 17.00 and to the 21.00 hours

The music will be performed by the Titular Orchestra of the Royal Theater under the direction of Miquel Ortega.

Premiered at the Châtelet Theater in Paris in 1989, Fire is the exponent of the purest seal Gades: "Go back to tradition if you want to evolve"; a work of transition between the already mythical montages of Carmen and Fuenteovejuna, possessing many of the artist-created assets that have never been repeated, and today they constitute a surprise that they make the work maintain its freshness.
