A pay dance leads our program, in the style and elegance that was Madrid in the late
1700's, based on music from the Spanish Operetta (Zarzuela) La Boda de Luis Alonso
(The Wedding of Luis Alonso).
Jose Molina with "La Trianera," Francisco Espinosa, and Beltran Espinosa A solo dance of dramatic intensity wherein the sentiment of the "cante" (song) unites with the rhythm of the guitar, inciting the dancer as he threads through the solemn grace of the Soleares.
Carmen Dominguez with Luis Porcel, Juan Lerma, Francisco Espinosa
and Beltran Espinosa Gypsies--happily occupied in their favorite pastime--song and dance!
Tiempo de Goya
Jose Molina with Antonia Martinez
An Intermezzo from the 18th century Spanish Classic School. A period highly influenced by the French and Italian Ballet, yet retaining the aesthetics of Spain.
Alegria de Malaga (Verdiales)
Luis Montero, Carmen Dominguez, Azucena Flores, Luis Porcel, Juan Lerma Solo Variation: Jose Molina and Maria Carmen Villena Singer: "La Trianera"
Guitarists: Francisco Espinosa and Beltran Espinosa In Malaga, when the day's catch of fish is in, a festive air prevails along the beaches.
La Noche (Seguiriyas)
Jose Molina with Antonia Martinez, "La Trianera," Francisco Espinosa, and Beltran Espinosa An encounter cloaked in the shadows of night.
A dance created to display the style, skill, and technique of the dancer's heelwork. All movement is concentrated in the feet of the dancer who moves listening to himself rather than depending on the musical accompaniment.
Bolero de Ravel
Jose Molina with the Company
Based upon an original idea of the great "La Argentinita," here is an exciting fantasy of color and movement which builds, with the music, to a frenzied climax.
Costilla la Nueva
Carmen Dominguez, Antonia Martinez, with Luis Porcel and Juan Lenna Valencia
Luis Montero and Maria Carmen Viixena Extremadura
Jose Molina with Azucena Flores Navarra
Luis Montero, Antonia Martinez, Maria Carmen Villena, Luis Porcel, and Juan Lerma
Spain is comprised of thirteen regions, each rich in folk dances. Here are typical dances from four of these regions, each costumed in its native dress, each distinctive in its charm, spirit and flavor.
Jose Molina with "La Trianera," Francisco Espinosa, and Beltran Espinosa The Cana, being pure in form, is a "jondo" or deep dance, danced from the inner depths of the soul. This dramatic solo appropriately introduces the sensual "Petenera."
Jose Molina, "La Trianera," Luis Montero, Luis Porcel, Juan Lerma,
Francisco Espinosa, Beltran Espinosa
"Petenera" danced by Maria Carmen Villena
"Quien te puso Petenera no supo ponerte nombre, te debian de haber puesto la perdicion de los hombres."
Whoever named you "Petenera" (Scarlet Woman) did not name you well, they should have named you "the eternal damnation of men."
Sr. Espinosa, a true savant and virtuoso of the Spanish guitar, plays pieces selected from his concert repertoire.

Finale Jose Molina and the Company
A Spanish Dance program would be incomplete without the "Cuadro Flamenco." This is a reunion of the company, gathered together for a good time and to compete in skills. The "palmas" or hand clapping is indispensable as is the "jaleo" or background rhythms created by the members of the company. The singing and dancing build to a frenzy which becomes contagious to the point where audience and performers become one. "Oles" and other exclamations of enthusiastic approval from the audience, as well as from the members of the company, animate and encourage the performer.
The entire program is conceived and directed by Jose" Molina.
