Staging of “Snow White” in Rubén Darío National Theater on November 15th at 6pm.

In order to celebrate its 17th anniversary, the Ballet Company of Nicaragua, with the support of Rubén Darío National Theater, invite you to assist to the staging of “Snow White”, this Sunday November 15th at 6pm in the main hall of the Theater.
This representation of classical ballet will be given in tribute of Anamalia Sierra, founder of the National School of Ballet and strong defender of that art in the country.

The staging of this piece, under general direction of William Herrera and artistic direction of Orlando López and William Herrera, took 5 months and the public will quickly see what a great quality work was done. You will be able to enjoy the talent of 122 Nicaraguan dancers, out of which 60 are students of the National School of Ballet, as well as the work done by the 17 people in charge of sewing the gorgeous costumes.
The main characters will be interpreted by Young Nicaraguan who already have an international career but came back to celebrate the anniversary of the Company: Ramín Ribel Morales as Snow White, William Herrera Gutiérrez as the Prince, Ramilet Morales in the role of the villainous Queen, Braulio Mena as the hunter and finally, Orlando López as the mirror.

Ramón Rodríguez, director of the National Theater, explained that the Theater has been doing a lot of efforts to promote a family program that parents and children can share. For that reason, they are really proud to be able to present this show that will be appreciated by all, for its artistic technical quality as well as for the magic it expresses, and will also allow the Theater to keep having an influence on the cultural education of children.

Anamalia Sierra commented that Nicaraguans are very talented for dance, particularly for ballet, and emphasized the professionalism of those young dancers who should be projected with pride. She also pointed out that those artists need to feel the warmth and the applauses of their parents and Friends, of the Nicaraguan public, to feel supported and be able to keep growing at an international level.
The artists promised a fresh, loving show with a lot of joy and dynamism and an incredible scenography: in other words, a show full of magic so, do not miss it!
