The Maestranza de Sevilla was once again passionate this Friday with Morante de la Puebla, the veteran artist who filled the evening with the purest and complete commitment to many very small choices, but from which he, nevertheless, took moments real bullfighting memories. .
The genius from Puebla walked only one ear, which in this case is the least important, but the data takes its true value if one takes into account that it was done after two punctures and a faulty lunge.
But, in fact, the whole weight of that legendary trophy was based on everything that had happened before, in a true demonstration of what is called “the passionate dedication” of the great bullfighter writer, Pepe Alameda, and that Morante one of the most prominent representatives. of the history of bullfighting.
And the strange thing is that no one could have imagined it even when that fourth bull came out into the arena and showed signs, in uncoordinated shortening of the first blow, that he was badly hurt, though not the president wanted to bring him back to the center. pens.
But, among his many bullfighting talents, Morante also deposits that surprise, that of seeing a bull that no one sees, and taking it out of his bullfighter’s cap, as if from the top of a hat wizard, a catalog of resources that can achieve. what seems impossible.
Already after they burned him, when García Jiménez’s man was gazapeando dubiously by the media, the Sevillian artist went to meet his snatch, without a single shadow of doubt, four chicueline terminators, very “walkers”, their evidence of the exclusive faith. of the bullfight in the possibilities of the animal.
And the truth is that they were very few, because the animal had a hard time using it, and there was hardly half an eye without zeal or pressure. With that minimal contract alone Morante was enough to curdle an authentic work of art, with deep feelings, in which he placed the highest percentage of success.
The key was full dedication, on the way to stand in front of the pythons, the most sincere; the way to present the crutch with the utmost purity; in the iron and the most authentic courage to wait for the slow start and sleep on me and, moreover, to pass it through the femoral muscles at a snail’s pace, very firm and always in.
It could not be, nor was it, an ordinary task, with the usual metric of the linking of passes, but it was round in intensity, in truth, in passion, even natural, in the case of the bull that threatened to sneak in and to arrest him,. but when he finished he also surrendered to the morantista testimony, to the absolute faith of this bullfighter in his unrepeatable skills for bullfighting.
As different, as in the basic bullfight as in the decorations, in the two-handed bullfight complex, in the changes from behind, in the auctions, inspired by the same trench, Morante turned the Maestranza upside down again, and that it is. far above furry trophies and bleeding, more or less.
Because his first one took advantage of the scarce fund, barely in his breath, to soften half a dozen verónicas long swings, perfectly smooth and at canopy speed, before he made a technical display, like the virtuoso that he is, to swim. the little that was left of García Jiménez.

Of the fight of the other four bulls there will not be much memory, and Juan Ortega, with the seemingly complicated fifth, and Tomás Rufo, with the brave third and the most manageable sixth, did not finish that invisible line that separates the simple. a defensive trade from that abandonment of everything that the deepest and most intense bullfight demands.
That transcendental bullfight, that authentic art on the frontier, to which Morante offered a new revelation again today. That bullfight will no longer inspire José Antonio Carretero with his mastery struggle, who left his tears on the albero when his little daughter cut his tail for the remains.
Six bulls from Hermanos García Jiménez (the 6th with ironOlga Jiménez), of direct presence and a little small, although there is apparatus and seriousness in the heads. For a different game, most were lacking in race and strength, with the exception of the third, bravo. Fifth and sixth place were manageable.
Morante de la Puebla, in apple green and gold: puncture and short detached lunge (ovation); two punctures and a low back lunge (ear).
Juan Ortega, corinthian and gold: piercing and pithing (silence); two punctures and an extended lunge (silence).
Tomás Rufo, tobacco and gold: puncture and rear lunge (ovation); Isolated lunge and three pithing (silence).
Among the teams, Sergio Blasco and Fernando Sánchez greeted each other with flags. In the fight, José Antonio Carretero stood out, who retired from active bullfighting and cut his daughter’s ponytail in the ring at the end of the celebration.
The first celebration of the San Miguel fair, with almost full – about 12,000 spectators – on a warm evening.
