BNC at the Dorothy Chandler June 2011 - Don Quixote

6 posts in this topic

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."

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:
