The Ballet Festivales de Espana is Spain's first National Ballet Company combining all of the finest dance elements in Spain into one Ballet.
It began two years ago when the best elements of Spain's Antonio Ballet, Zarzuela Ballet and Festival Ballet were joined into the Ballet Nacional Festivales de Espana. Rarely has such a large number of Spanish stars been seen together on stage.
One of Spain's best choreographers, Alberto Lorca, has participated in the for?mation of the Ballet Espana, as have choreographers and designers Jose Gravero, J. Granero and Juanjo Linares. Additional choreography has been provided by Mario la Vega, Aurora Pons, Curra Jimenez and Ciro.

Candelas, a young gypsy, was madly in love with a flirtatious and jealous gypsy who had died of a stab wound while in a fight. Tormented by the memories of her old lover, she asks an old gypsy to help free herself of these memories. Carmelo, another young gypsy, loves Candelas, but she does not return his love, since she is still possessed by the spirit of her jealous lover. The old gypsy, in agreement with Lucia, still another young and beautiful gypsy girl, friend of Candelas and Carmelo and also of the Spectre, decides to try to use her magic influence to liberate Candelas, who at that point dances the "Fire Dance," a ritual dance. Candelas, however, continues under the influence of the Spectre and Carmelo suggests to Lucia that, with her charm, she should seduce the loving gypsy and drive the Spectre away, so that he may have access to Candelas. Lucia accepts and makes love to the Spectre, and thus Carmelo seizes the opportunity to seduce Candelas. The lovers kiss each other and love triumphs over the deadly influence of the Spectre who disappears forever.
