The National Ballet of Cuba with director the world famous Alicia Alonso offered a mixed program of highlights from several classical ballets. I could not describe the pleasure that the night gave me!!! The company has huge and never ending pool...continued
Its dancers are the product of Russian-style classical training, but exude a style all their own. Their works are Western ballet standards, but they are invigorated with intense passions. When Ballet Nacional de Cuba returns to the Kennedy Center for the first time in ten years, they will perform two programs that bridge the gap between refined taste and pure entertainment.
In addition to the highlights listed above, the company will also present their acclaimed version of Don Quixote. “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,” says the New York Times. This Cuban company has embraced a tradition of romantic and classical excellence since it was founded by Alicia Alonso in 1948. The troupe, which regularly tours Europe, Asia and South America, brings its beautiful footwork, strong dancers and impeccable technique for a long-awaited appearance before Washington audiences for the first time since 2001.
