Candidates to Succeed Alonso?
Posted 11 June 2012 - 08:22 AM
From outside the company I can think of 2 candidates: Jose Carreno and Carlos Acosta. Both are international stars, heavily immersed in Russian classics, the company staples. However, they don't have much experience in running a company.
I anticipate a much more open Cuba post Fidel and hopefully a normalized relationship between the US and Cuba, in that case I think Jose may have an edge in establishing connections with wealthy donors in New York and Miami.

Loipa Araujo is my most likely candidate - one tough cookie, from my first-hand observations!

Definitely a VERY tough lady, Natasha! The times I've seen her spaking she even comes out as harsh. Here she is in a completely challenge to her natural persona.

Short interview at 1:10 on the occasion (I think) of a recent documentary "Loipa, existencia en plenitud" by Gloria Arguelles, conveying something perhaps of Araujo's fierceness and charm.

Interesting...at the very last seconds of the dialogue, Araujo and Delgado discuss the final pose of Aurora's variation. When Araujo notices the way Delgado chooses that very pose, she asks-intrigued-WHO taught it to her it, or where did she take it from...at one point asking her.."Was it Alicia..?" Then, they go back and forth about the way it used to be and the way the pose is being held nowadays, and when Araujo advises her to choose the modern one, she then says, "And if they ask you who was responsible, make me guilty...by the time they do it I won' be here..."
