Direct from Spain

Throughout February 2016, the artists of Silicon Valley Ballet visited major theaters across Spain, in a European debut tour. The Director's Choice program is the same program selected by Artistic Director José Manuel Carreño to introduce the artists of Silicon Valley Ballet to an international audience. 

"Madrid was one highlight of the tour," Carreño said. "We had four performances, and they were really, really packed -- two sold out and the others 98 percent full. It was fantastic." - San Jose Mercury News
