Program notes

Víctor Barrio Hernanz (29 May 1987 – 9 July 2016) was a Spanish bullfighter from Segovia. He was killed by a bull during the Feria del Ángel festival in Teruel; the bullfight was broadcast live on television. He was the first bullfighter to be killed in Spain since 1985.
 
Barrio was killed by a 529-kg bull named Lorenzo. The bull's horns perforated Barrio's chest several times. He was transported to the bullring's infirmary and was pronounced dead shortly thereafter. The autopsy revealed that Barrio's lungs and thoracic aorta had been pierced. Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy paid tribute to him. Due to Barrio's death, most of the festival acts were cancelled.
