Cuban Children's Company La Colmenita in Romania

The Cuban children’s theater company La Colmenita arrived in Romania on Wednesday as part of a tour that includes Bulgaria and Turkey, director Carlos Alberto Cremata said.

The company, a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, was welcomed at the Palace of Children in Bucharest, where they will perform on 12 August.

The group, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, ended a tour of Andalucia and Cantabria in Spain in Monday after performing 24 shows attended by more than 10,500 people.

In theaters, squares, hospitals, schools and centers for the disabled in Seville, Granada, Almodovar del Rio, Torrelavega, Laredo, Huelma, and San Vicente de la Barquera, the children performed their show, "Meñique," an adaptation by Cuban writer Jose Marti of "Le Petit Poucet" by Édouard René de Laboulaye.

As usual, children performed live songs from the Nueva Trova genre, by singer-songwriters such as Pablo Milanes and Silvio Rodriguez, and others by the groups Los Van Van and The Beatles.

Founded in 1990, La Colmenita has several branches in countries like Venezuela, Mexico, Panama and Colombia. Since its creation, it has performed on stages in the United States, Canada, Finland, France and Germany.
