Before its presentation along with Paloma Herrera at the Luna Park, the ballet of Teatro Colón, with the artistic direction of Olga Ferri, will offer two performances at Teatro Coliseo of "Les Sylphides", the pas-des-deux from "Don Quixote", and Maurice Ravel´s "Bolero". They will be accompanied by Teatro Colón´s Orchestra, directed by Mario Benzecry.

The first part will be dedicated to Les Sylphides, with choreography by Michael Fokin, on the original pieces for piano by Frederic Chopin. In this "romantic dream", conceived by Fokin in 1908, the poet is surrounded by the immaterial creatures, the "Sylphides". The main roles in this part will be performed by Maricel De Mitri, Juan Pablo Ledo ( Pas-de-deux), Silvina Perillo (waltz), Karina Olmedo (Mazurca, woman), Juan Pablo Ledo (Mazurka, man), Maricel De Mitra (Prelude), Maria Eugenia Padilla, Silvina Vaccarelli (Corifeas).

The second part will consist of two pas-de-deux: the one from Spartakus, with choreography by Atilio Labis and music by Aram Khachaturian, performed by Karina Olmedo and Vagran Ambartsoumian; and the one from Don Quixote, with choreography by Marius Petipa and music by Ludwig Minkus, performed by Gabriela Alberti and Juan Pablo Ledo.

The performance will end with "Bolero", by Maurice Ravel, with choreography by José Zartmann, with its roots on the Flemish and Spanish gypsies' dances. This version was presented at the Coreographyc Workshop of Teatro Colón in 1989 and incorparated into the ballet's repertoire in 1992.
