Long synopsis

Carlos Saura´s IBERIA is a celebratory tour-de-force, uniting the breathtaking discipline, skill and passionate heart of Flamenco, classical music, ballet and contemporary dance. Working with the greatest living Spanish talents, by combining them as never before, Saura has succeeded not only in drawing the best from each, but in raising them to new, dizzying heights.

Inspired by the work of Spanish composer Isaac Albéniz, IBERIA is a uniquely integrated, wholly authentic musical. His camera transformed into one of the performers – sharing preparations, rehearsals, the gradual birth of the performances – Saura conjures a dramatic and utterly compelling universe, a world of passion and creativity.

IBERIA’s stellar cast of performers includes: Sara Baras, Antonio Canales, José Antonio Ruiz, Aida G³mez and Patrick De Bana. Musicians include the preeminent world guitarists, Manolo Sanlºcar, Gerardo Nº±ez and José Antonio Rodr­guez; pianist Rosa Torres Pardo; flamenco-jazz stars Chano Dom­nguez and Jorge Pardo; and the greatest living cantaor Enrique Morente and his extraordinary daughter Estrella Morente.
