“Bodas de sangre” won’t be performed in China because of the coronavirus

Madrid / The Antonio Gades Compañía has decided to suspend its tour in twenty cities in China, which was to begin on February 28 and end on April 3, for fear of the coronavirus epidemic that has already caused the death of the Asian country 106 people, according to the latest data.

 

 

The Compañía, which was to perform the works “Bodas de sangre” and “Flamenco Suite”, explains in a statement that they have made the decision “after several days of conversations and contacts with experts and official entities”.

They regret “much” the postponement of the trip, which 25 people were going to attend, “especially for the artists and technicians involved in it”, but they “agree” with all the public health measures adopted by the official entities of China and Spain.

The Compañía, resident in Getafe, will perform next Saturday at the Calderón Theater in Alcoy, Alicante, with “Fuego” and on February 20 in Istanbul with “Carmen“. (January 29, 2020, EFE/Practica Español)
