To be born, to die … maybe to dance.
There are two laws in the life of Marta Carrasco. One is black and glorious: the execution of his grandfather, Manuel
The other is charming: that of María Teresa de Salomó, who was a dancer from the Liceu with the artistic name of Salomé and whose father, notary in La Bisbal, when the company arrived in town bought all the tickets so that no one could see it.
