Royal Ballet in Cuba

The Royal Ballet will be visting Cuba for the first time in July with performances that play homage to Cuban Ballet legend Alicia Alonso.

The Cuban visit also came about as one of the Royal Ballet's principal dancers Carlos Acosta would love to perform in his home Country and it would be the highlight of his career.

The company will bring 96 dancers to Havana and is scheduled to perform four pieces, one of which will be a tribute to Alonso and will also include dancers from the Cuban National Ballet.
