Las Hermanas was originally created by Kenneth MacMillan for Stuttgart Ballet in 1963.
Las Hermanas (meaning The Sisters) tells the story of five sisters living under the oppressive rule of their mother. The contrasting temperaments of each sister are demonstrated through MacMillan’s choreography which explores the powerful effects of sexuality, repression and jealousy, and when the younger sister seduces the eldest sister’s fiancé, the consequences are devastating.
