Sensational Flamenco dancer Liliana Ruiz and Maestro Daniel Spalding and his Virtuosi Orchestra of Philadelphia perform a unique interpretation of Bizet’s “Carmen” as arranged by Russian composer Rodin Shchedrintelling. They bring to Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center an exclusive production designed to leave audiences not just entertained, but enthralled.
Liliana Ruiz specializes in Classical Spanish Dance with castanets, brilliant costumes, Folklore and Flamenco. She has shared the stage with celebrities Julio Iglesias, Peter Nero, Placido Domingo and more. Raised in Mexico City, she has been dancing professionally since the age of thirteen, inspired by her family's deep-rooted passion for the arts.
Maestro Spalding is recognized as “one of the most innovative conductors on today’s music scene” (L. Budman, Miami Herald). He and the Virtuosi Orchestra of Philadelphia have dazzled audiences from L.A. to New York’s Lincoln Center and from Rio de Janeiro to Moscow with unique and powerful performances, re-defining the classical music experience. Their CD recording of “Carmen” was a Grammy finalist, using drums, marimbas and xylophones to bring forth the authentic flavor and syncopated rhythms of the music.
