On 22nd July 1919, in London, the Diaghilev Ballets Russes premiered one of the most relevant works in the history of Western dance and music, the international projection of Spanish culture and the configuration of the Spanishness imaginary. This ballet was based on the adaptation of Pedro Antonio de Alarcón's book by María Lejárraga, and had a score by Manuel de Falla, set and costume designs by Pablo Picasso and a choreography by Léonide Massine. Since that moment, the ballet has been performed a huge number of times around the world, with versions by the most significant choreographers, and still lives in the repertoire of some current dance companies.
Moreover, The Three-Cornered Hat has focused the attention of many critics and scholars, who have built a large historiography throughout the years, both in Spain and abroad, which might be advisable to review. The work becomes a relevant and complex creation where concepts such as the construction of stereotypes, the national identity, the authentic, the popular, and the joining of tradition and avant-garde are interwoven.
Therefore, this international conference proposes celebrating the centenary of this milestone which allowed the convergence of so many prominent Spanish and international artists, studying its world impact and assessing its contributions in dance, music, visual arts and literature.
