June 2016 Tour to Puerto Rico - Giselle

Recommended Posts

The Ballet Nacional de Cuba will present its GISELLE next month in San Juan's Bellas Artes theater. Three performances from June 10-12. Principal casting has not yet been announced.

Scroll down to "Junio"; this doesn't specify dates & times of performances, which I found through local TicketCenter site:

Still no principal casting, though. I wonder why?

Also, I notice that Amaya Rodriguez is no longer shown on their roster, as "Primeros Bailarines" or any category. Maybe this is just a website tech error? Here is the current roster of Primeros Bailarines:

Click on the photos to get the bios. The only four ladies pictured are Arencibia, Delgado, Pinera & Valdez. Rodriguez was among them last time I checked, a year ago. She was their youngest Prima, just promoted in 2013. Or did I miss a recent defection notice????? Very disappointing if she doesn't dance Giselle in San Juan. Alternately, we can pray for Annette Delgado to show up. :)

Also....

If the troupe's latest female "young wonder" Gabriela Mesa isn't on this tour, I'll be disappointed. (She is still on their roster, in the Soloist category.)

Cross posting link to thread on Amaya Rodriguez:

She appears to have defected to Mexico/USA in 2015. So Puerto Rico will not be seeing her Giselle next month.

Amaya will dance Giselle with the Cuban Classical Ballet of Miami on June 17. I will be in Russia then.. ;-(
