Three decades ago, Spanish choreographer David Campos was asked to help Filipina ballerina Irene Sabas with her suitcase. Sabas had just arrived as a new member of the Royal Ballet of Flanders in Germany. Little did they know that this would be the beginning of a great love story - theirs, as well as of their own countries. Together, they returned to Campos' hometown in Barcelona and founded Ballet David Campos in 1987. Today, the company dancers include Elline Damian, Aileen Gallinera, Eduardo Espejo and Karina Campos, who will interpret the principal roles in "Giselle" and "The Sleeping Beauty."
