"Valero, a consummate performer, is well-exhibited throughout the show in a series of solos. Perhaps the most “soul-jarring” is “Solea Del Rubio,” in which his flirtations with stillness and an almost-pedestrian beginning business with his tie only make his later virtuosity more apparent. Where in previous solos Valero seemed to be a hairsbreadth from crackling prowess, this one is performed with a delicate sensuousness. In an adept feat of storytelling, Valero’s eyes project a haunting sadness that gives way to pleas and anger at some lost love. Moving through a dense and emotionally-charged landscape, Valero finally makes it through to the other side and the solo culminates in a wildly joyful reclamation of self, complete with lightning-fast footwork and some multiple pirouettes thrown in for good measure. It was enough to make chills break out across my skin!"
