Traffic on the 101 is so unpredictable. Allow lots of extra time to get there.

See articles on Ballet Nacional de Cuba from The Guardian and Dance magazine.
“Those looking for passion, Latin or otherwise, will find it in this idiosyncratic 1988 version of the 19th-century Don Quixote…a production filled with dramatic motivation.” —The New York Times

Description

Combining classical romanticism with a Latin boldness, Ballet Nacional de Cuba is one of the most prestigious ballet companies performing today. The company will present the classic Don Quixote featuring the fearless strength of its dancers and Alicia Alonso’s inventive choreography accompanied by the L.A. Opera Orchestra. Rarely touring in the U.S., this Music Center debut is an event that can’t be missed.
