On January 12 and 14,2012,  Ballet Flamenco La Rosa, an international flamenco company based in Miami, presented the world premiere of Directo Al Corazon (Straight to the Heart) , a flamenco ballet by Artistic Director and Choreographer Ilisa Rosal.  Inspired by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler. This cutting-edge work features world-renowned flamenco dancer La Truco and an international cast of musicians and dancers. Directed by Ilisa Rosal, La Truco, one of Spain’s most sought after female soloists, will dance the role of Hedda. Joining her are the dynamic soloists Jose Merino, Jose Moro and Fermin de Mora, as well as guitarist Antonio Españadero and singer David Vasquez, direct from Spain, along with Joe Zeytoonian and Myriam Eli of Harmonic Motion for this groundbreaking world premiere.

With its spectacular footwork, athleticism and vibrant energy, Directo al Corazon is sensual and spiritual, raw and refined, and filled with both restrained passion and electrifying release. .
