The history of the staging of the ballet was full of setbacks. After its premiere in Madrid, the ballet was performed abroad, including Paris. But after the assassination of García Lorca, and with the rest of the company’s directors in exile, the show was performed on tour in the United States and Canada. For this new production, which was performed by the Russian Ballet of Monte Carlo, the sister of La Argentinita, Pilar López Júlvez, created a new choreography, and the painter Joan Junyer was responsible for creating new costumes and scenery.
