From the English National Opera site, an upcoming Carlos Acosta's performance, for those lucky who can attend:
Carlos Acosta is the greatest ballet dancer of his generation. He is a principal dancer at Covent Garden; Tocororo, the show about his own life, that he wrote, choreographed and starred in, broke box office records at Sadler's Wells; and in his homeland of Cuba he is a national hero. Renowned for combining Cuban passion with a remarkable technical virtuosity and raw athleticism, watching Carlos Acosta dance is a breathtaking experience not to be missed. Carlos Acosta has chosen some of his favourite moments in ballet and brought them together to create one evening of spectacular dance. He draws on his roots, taking works from the Ballet Nacional de Cuba's repertoire such as Tarde en la Siesta, as well as the ever popular Diana and Acteon, and in an uplifting finale, he will treat the audience to some traditional Cuban moves from the final scene of Tocororo. For this very special programme Carlos will be joined onstage by artists from The Royal Ballet including Mara Galeazzi, Marianela Nunez and Federico Bonelli amongst others.
