(' Love the magician ')
A ballet by G. Martinez Sierra founded on an Andalusian Gypsy tale with music by Manuel de Falla played by BBC Theatre Orchestra
Leader, Tate Gilder
Conductor, Stanford Robinson
Singer, Leonie Zifado
The story of this ballet by the cele
'brated Spanish playwright,
Martinez Sierra , is founded on a folk tale, the gruesome subject of which is the ghostly jealousy of a young Gypsy woman's dead lover, who appears to her and her new lover whenever these two are thrown passionately together, and terrifies them into separation. Candelas, the young Gypsy, attempts by various dances and other rites to exorcise the spectre, but it is not until she employs her friend, Lucia, to distract the furious ghost while Candelas is with her lover that she is enabled to get rid of him for ever.
