After a successful tour around Spain and Oman, the National Ballet of Cuba, directed by Prima Ballerina Assoluta Alicia Alonso, is preparing two special performances for Saturday, November 28, at 8:30 pm, and Sunday, November 29, at 5:00 pm, in the Avellaneda hall of the Havana’s Teatro Nacional.
The first performance will be dedicated to the 35th anniversary of the Casa Editora Abril, and the second one to Jose Marti Cultural Society’s 20th anniversary.
The program will include En las sombras de un vals, Cuba dentro de un piano, Excelsior (pas de deux), Lucia Jerez and Don Quixote ballet’s suite.
The prestigious dance company recently returned to Cuba after touring 13 Spanish cities (Madrid, Barcelona, Cuenca, Pamplona, Bilbao, Burgos, Leon, Zamora, Palencia, Oviedo, Soria, Aranda de Duero and San Sebastián), and making three performances in Oman.
Every time, the public and the critics had words of praise for the performances of Don Quixote and Swan Lake. There was also some interest in a varied program consisting of Les Sylphides, Celeste and Carmen.
