The Royal Opera House Muscat welcomes Julio Bocca and the National Ballet of Uruguay for two nights of exhilarating dance on September 25 and 26.
Founded in 1935, the National Ballet of Uruguay is one of the oldest in Latin America. Each of its ROHM performances will offer a slightly different program featuring both classical ballet and modern dance along with a touch of the evocative tango.
Julio Bocca, the artistic director of the National Ballet of Uruguay, is one of the most famous choreographers in the world and the most famous dancers in the history of Argentina.
In 2007 an estimated 300,000 people attended his open-air show in his hometown of Buenos Aires, Argentina. His many awards for dance include the gold medal at the Fifth International Ballet Competition in Moscow (1985), Dancer of the Year by the New York Times (1987), and the Gold Medal in the Arts by the Kennedy Center's International Committee on the Arts (2008).
Mr. Bocca will give a lecture at the Opera House about his engaging art-form along with a preview of the performance one hour before each show.
