Since 2005, every 11 March, Europe remembers all the victims of terrorist attacks in an act of acknowledgment and memory of those who died, the survivors and their families. The director of the Ballet Nacional de España took part in the institutional event held on 11 March 2021 on the grounds of Madrid’s Palacio Real, which was presided by the King and Queen of Spain. Rubén Olmo danced his choreography Danza del ave fénix in a majestic white mantón de Manila [embroidered shawl]. The Orquesta Nacional de España, conducted by David Afkham, played Amorosa (Ala baita) by Basque composer Jesús Guridi, the sixth number out of ten Basque melodies. The melancholy music accompanied the movements and gestures of pain of the dancer in this metaphor about arising from the ashes.
