Announced today:

Ballet Nacional de Cuba is the ultimate expression of Cuban pride. Combining classical romanticism with a Latin boldness, it is one of the most prestigious ballet companies performing today. The company presents the classic "Don Quixote" featuring the fearless strength of its dancers and Alicia Alonso's inventive choreography.

"In Cuba...many talented dancers end up in the Ballet Nacional. There they combine a Russian-style classical training with Latin flair, and are in demand the world over."

How exciting. I will hopefully be recovered from Don Quixote overload by then.

It is very tempting (surprised she is doing the weekend matinee rather than opening night)...I am seeing the Valdes Don Quixote Excerpt Spectacular during one of the Magia de la Danza evenings that I am attending, so even if I don't get to her full DQ, I will get a taste!! :clapping:

Here..a glimpse of one of those performances in Dennmark...(Miss V really knew how to wake up the danes...toward the end they start screaming as if it was the noisy Havana audience... :P )



And one of her recent SL performances...
