Uninspired, dated choreography. Hope this dance troupe can soon invite some guest choreographers to spice up their repertoire.

Also, the Dorothy Chandler is a depressing venue. It also is overdue for a renovation.

Great performance but not the perfection of the recent Orange County performance.

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


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.
