  Raquel Peña’s ‘Ballet Español’
On Sunday 29th April, once again and by popular demand, this outstanding dance group will present a full length concert bringing all the magic, fire and fantastic colourful costumes to the stage of the Teatro Capitol, Rojales. If you have never seen this ballet and want to see and hear what Spanish dance and Flamenco are all about, Raquel Peña, the director, choreographer and founder, is an expert in making the time fly by, leaving the audience asking for more. There is never a dull moment!
   
  A Symbol for San Javier
The sculptor Nicolás de Maya has prepared a work to represent “the sum of the women and men that make up this constantly advancing municipality,” which now has pride of place inside the entrance of the town hall.
   
  ‘Vivace’ to Perform ‘Olivet to Calvary’ During Easter Week
There was a time not so very long ago, when throughout the UK, hundreds of churches with choirs used to perform either Maunder’s ‘Olivet to Calvary’ or Stainer’s ‘Crucifixion’ every Easter, in the run up to Good Friday. Written in 1904, ‘Olivet to Calvary’ is a dramatic and tuneful sacred cantata lasting about an hour, which follows the Easter story from Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem until his crucifixion. It is written for choir, with solo parts for tenor and baritone. ‘Vivace’ Classical Choir, which performed with great success extracts from Handel’s ‘Messiah’ locally in January, will be performing ‘Olivet to Calvary’ at three venues during Easter Week. The soloists will be Stephen George, a professional tenor experienced in both operatic roles and as a soloist for many major choral concert performances, who is coming here from the UK specifically for these performances, and Douglas Brown, the well known local bass-baritone. Tom Pargeter will conduct and the accompanist will be Sue Trick.  The performances will be on Monday 2nd April at 8.30pm in the Parroquial Church in San Miguel de Salinas; on Tuesday 3rd April at 7pm in the Norwegian Cultural Centre in Calle Ravel, immediately behind the urbanisation church in La Siesta, Torrevieja, and on Wednesday 4th April at 7.30pm in the urbanisation church at Los Balcones, Torrevieja. Entry will be 5 euros at the La Siesta and Los Balcones performances, the proceeds going to the upkeep of the premises used and also to meet the costs of the choir. Entry can be either at the door on the night or by prior purchase of programmes from representatives of both premises. Any further information can be obtained from Elly van der Vecht (966 716 016) or Andrew Duckworth (619 621 261). 
   
  Coro Pilar Spring Concert

  Torrevieja’s Medieval Market Is Back
The third Medieval Market in Torrevieja will be quite a bit different from the previous two. First of all because of different surroundings: this year the market will be held in the Parque de las Naciones, as extensive building works are being carried out in the Eras the la Sal, where the market was held in previous years. Secondly because the organisers, the craft association Amata, have chosen for a Celtic touch, with witches, druids, elves and other mythical characters walking around and medieval minstrels playing Celtic music.  More than 75 stalls will line the alleys of the beautiful park over the Easter weekend offering a wide variety of hand made goods; under the trees and next to the lake you can sit down and enjoy medieval food, home brewed beer or original Asturian cider. You can watch the armourer, the glass blower and the carpenter at work and buy bread still hot from the wood oven. There will be birds of prey, snakes and ferrets and the children can have a ride on a donkey. Witches, a quack, a druid and a priest are involved in a session of exorcism and at night a procession of ghosts will walk around to make the public shudder; jugglers, bards, dwarfs and other characters will mingle with the crowd and every evening closes with a spectacular show of juggling with fire. The Parque de las Naciones with its Medieval Market can be found just off the N-332 at Torrevieja, near the Habaneras shopping centre. The market is open on Friday 6th, Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th April, from 11am-9pm. For more information (also in English) call 639 979 678.
