Will they applaud me?

Latest NewsWill they applaud me?

After the pasaillo, the entire square explodes with stormy applause; After a few moments of thought, Alejandro Talavante appears on a taunt (“this will be for me, who has distanced himself from this since October 2018”), and on the third ceremoniously thanks for the welcome. Talavante locks himself, but the applause continues with the same fervor. “Go away Juan (Ortega), this will be for you.” “But if I…” And the Seville bullfighter greets the fans. But now, the applause is getting louder. And now for whom? “These palm trees will be for Alvaro” who is none other than the outstanding bullfighter who had to kill five bulls on Easter Sunday due to a serious accident by Emilio de Justo.

And with some modesty, Alvaro de la Calle left the burladero (the square was already buzzing), approached Talavante, as if asking permission, and received a tribute from a grateful fan.

Additional Information

Since there is no technology in bullfighting, it will never be known who was awarded the applause from the first moment, whether it was Talavante, the eminent or Juan Ortega, but the truth is that there were several moments of genuine emotion.

And that was more or less the end of the bullfight. And not even four minutes had passed since the beginning, but such a storm of applause was no longer heard during the whole celebration.

Hand in hand between Talavante and Juan Ortega. Who would come up with the size of the muskrat? What is the point of facing two bullfighters who have never competed in the ring, with two different bullfights and no apparent desire, as it turned out later, to confront anything?

All the culture that comes with you is waiting for you here.


And an invaluable detail: this celebration was advertised as a Bullfight of Culture, but no one remembered it, and not a single cultural authority was seen to have hair on its head.

It was expected, yes, to see Talavante, who retired in October 2018 and only made a foray into France during the pandemic. And, as expected, three years of rest are not in vain; three years without contact with the bull in the arena take their toll. So, Talavante retains her beautiful bullfights, but does not show the ease and safety of other times.

Jandilla’s bullfight was useless; noble, soft and very outcast, but desired by Talavante, hieratic, upright, well planted, took the world to understand the third day, which cut off one of his ears, after the last two rounds with his right hand, long, dense and overflowing with his personality.

He squeezed out the noble first without much interest and quickly passed the fifth, one of the softest of the day.

Sitting next to him, Juan Ortega gave the impression of a timid, sad, depressed man who was uncomfortable under such circumstances. His bulls weren’t jubilant, but the image he created was unsettling. A bunch of beautiful veronicas on the receipt for his first one, and that was the end of his story. He gave many crutches without saying anything. He was seen clumsy before very insipid at first; insecure and unsure of himself and cuts ambition with the fourth, and discourages before the sixth. In addition, he heard slight objections that should have made him think.

He has many abilities, but sometimes he does not have an attitude; seems to be a conformist, and this is not the best path to success.

At least he heard the applause, which he greeted after the dispersal of the parade, although he will never know if he did it or not. Which things…

By the way, the outstanding Alvaro de la Calle did not receive the barracks and went unnoticed. Better that way, he says.
