Ballet Ariel. Assaig The ballet Ariel is presented for the first time ever in a single session on 29th Jan and a double session on 30th, in the Auditorium in Valls. The libretto is by J.V. Foix, the set and wardrobe by Joan Miró and the music by Valls’s own Robert Gerhard.

The ballet has never been shown before because the Spanish Civil War broke out the year in which it was created. Seventy-five years later, the Amics de la Música de Valls have promoted the production and have included it in the Alt Camp’s Capital’s 10-year Festival. This new show is aided by the Robert Gerhard Center.
