Bolero, Medea and flamenco, all remind you of breathtaking dance, don't they? Now the National Ballet of Spain will perform all three together in one night. Ravel's haunting melody and rhythm of Bolero inspired many choreographers including Nijinsky and Maurice Bejart. Now Jose Granero presents his 1987 production. He also interprets the myth of Medea into Spanish ballet. Farruca, choreographed by Juan Quintero, is a perfect example of flamenco combined with ballet, especially the exquisite footwork.

7:30 pm, Nov 1 and 2. National Center for the Performing Arts, West of Tian'anmen Square, Beijing.
