Thanks, cubanmiamiboy! I saw the very cast from your first clip dance this ballet in San Juan during the memorable August 1978 tour to Pto Rico. This ballet had the audience in a frenzy, especially when the guys jumped on each others' backs at the end, forming a human pyramid of sorts. I just remember the entire audience jumping up from their seats and screaming 'Bravo!' ... not sitting down until the ballet ended a minute or so later.
Thanks for your memories, Natasha. I believe that the first clip actually belongs to that very Puerto Rican tour you remember. Also interesting to note that Williams, from the first clip, was the first black dancer to climb the ranks in the Cuban company.
