Just-announced casting for the RDB's run of Don Quixote (which opens tomorrow) shows that Romel Frometa, principal dancer with the National Ballet of Cuba, will dance Basilio on April 20th and 22nd, with Amy Watson as his Kitri. This is the Cuban production of Don Q, and Frometa follows Annette Delgado and Joel Carreno, who danced the leading roles in Copenhagen last season.

'Home team' casts announced so far are Yao Wei with Nehemiah Kish, and Diana Cuni with Thomas Lund.

Frometa's website includes a video of clip of him in Don Q.

Oh,Frometa is great...a very clean dancer with a beautiful smile and true latin fire. I predict a night with lots of fun... :wink: As per Yoelito, I saw him dancing in Havana ever since he graduated, but was always overshadowed by big brother Toto-(Jose Manuel Carreno). As per comments I've received from friends, he's dancing better than ever now. Annette is always a pleasure to watch.
Good for los cubanitos!!! :o
