Spanish and Israeli flamenco artists have joined forces for Lady of the Camellias that will be presented at the Karmiel Dance Festival, the Hot Dance series and at venues throughout the country starting July 18 at Suzanne Dellal in Tel Aviv. The creators are Michal Natan and her Compas troupe together with the Miguel Angel Spanish Ballet led by Angel. Lady of the Camellias by Alexandre Dumas Jr. is, of course, the story of poor doomed Marguerite and her Armand, immortalized by Verdi in La Traviata and by Greta Garbo on screen. Natan, who received her flamenco training in Spain, established Compas in 1995. Angel, who was a soloist with the National Ballet of Spain for five years, established his company in 1989. The two met when Angel came here with the Rafael Aguilar company, and first danced together when Angel and his company came in 2004. Since then she has appeared with the company as a guest artist, most recently in Japan.
