RICARDO CASTRO ROMERO was born to dance.
Ricardo, his brother and sister, and his mother are each National Cultural Treasures of Spain in flamenco.
He left home at age 15 to dance in the film “El Amor Brujo” by Carlos Saura, and joined the Spanish National Ballet soon after. He has been a guest soloist at the Kremlin, The Kirov/ Mariinsky, the Mikhailovsky, and for over 10 years he starred at the world famous tablao flamenco “Corral de la Morería” in Madrid, Spain (listed in the NY Times bestseller “1000 Places to See Before You Die”).
Most recently, Ricardo choreographed and starred in the Bolshoi Opera’s new production of CARMEN and the world premiere of DEVIL IN LOVE with the Stanislavsky Opera.
Ricardo co-directs, choreographs and dances with his own company, Castro Romero Flamenco, dedicated to preserving the culture and rich heritage of Spanish Dance, and his photography (ricardocastrophoto.com) is receiving international recognition.
