Bailarín que sujeta de la mano a bailarina realizando un arabesque

Wind, the programme that will be presented at Veranos de la Villa by the prestigious Slovenian National Theater Opera and Ballet Ljubljana in honour of Slovenia’s presidency of the Council of the EU, consists of two of the most successful pieces created by Renato Zanella during his time as artistic director of the Vienna State Ballet.


In the first part of the programme, we’ll be able to enjoy a spectacular, extremely technical performance of a solid neoclassical ballet for Piano Concerto No. 5 in E Flat Major, Op. 73, by Ludwig van Beethoven, whose composition was inspired by Napoleon. He used the orchestra like a mighty army in stark contrast to the delicate piano notes.


The second piece, Strauss’ Dream, is a contemporary adaptation of the traditional Vienna New Year’s Concert, featuring the best-known music by Strauss and Gustav Mahler. It’s traditional, modern, romantic, nostalgic, entertaining and full of humour and energy. The most recognisable pieces include The Pizzicato Polka, by Johann Strauss, Adagietto from Symphony No. 5, by Mahler, and the popular Radetzky March, by Johann Strauss Jr.
