From the Sadler's Wells official site, this is the information about Carlos Acosta's upcoming London performance with guests artists from Ballet Nacional de Cuba:

Sadler's Wells.
Rosebery Ave. EC1R Islington.

23 Oct. 2007 and 28 Oct. 2007

Carlos Acosta with Guest Artists from Ballet Nacional de Cuba.


"Le Corsaire" - chor. Alicia Alonso after M.Petipa
"El río y el bosque" ("The river and the forest")-chor. Alberto Mendez
"Muñecos" ("Toys")-chor. Alberto Mendez
"Paso a tres" ("Pas de trois")- chor. Alberto Méndez

Plus additional choreography by Carlos Acosta , featuring live music by Aldo Lopez Gavilan and his band .

Carlos Acosta is one of ballet’s superstars, known for his extraordinary athleticism and remarkable technical virtuosity. Now, for the very first time in London, he will join forces with guest dancers from the Ballet Nacional de Cuba, in a programme of classical ballet which has a distinctly Cuban feel.

From the age of nine Acosta trained at the National Ballet School of Cuba. Inspired by Alicia Alonso's Ballet Nacional de Cuba he went on to become the greatest ballet dancer of his generation; and a national hero in Cuba.

The Ballet Nacional de Cuba is renowned for its unparalleled technique. Watching Carlos Acosta dance with artists from this remarkable company, including Viengsay Valdes, Anette Delgado and Javier Torres, promises to be a breathtaking experience, not to be missed.

Press Reviews:

"Technical fireworks with brilliant charm and awesome ease...":
THE TELEGRAPH on Ballet Nacional de Cuba

"Cuba has consistently produced wonderful classical dancers... bringing a joyful flair to ballet which is comparable to the Brazilian genius for football..."
THE OBSERVER on Ballet Nacional de Cuba.

I hope that we can have some attendants from BT to report back.

Mme. Hermine's LINKS today contains a brief article about Acosta's preparations for this program, which will combine classical and Afro-Cuban material.

It's the second article on the list.

I hope some of our British members will be able to report on this.
