Spanish TV to Broadcast Documentary on Alicia Alonso

Spanish television was placing the final touches on a documentary about Cuban prima ballerina Alicia Alonso, one of the all-time legends of classical ballet and the creator of a universal style.

The one-hour documentary, the in of a series entitled "Imprescindibles" (The Essential Ones), will address the artistic careers and lives of great figures in the arts.

Directed by Nicholas Garcia, "Imprescindible: Alicia Alonso" will be screened first in October in Cuba during the opening gala of the 22nd International Ballet Festival of Havana.

The documentary pays tribute to Alicia's enduring legacy, as the founder, together with Fernando and Alberto Alonso, of a company and a school considered by international critics as one of best in the world.

Alicia's ties with Spain, where there is a university department with her name, are longstanding. As she herself recounts in one of her personal memories, the emergence of her passion for dance is tied to Spain, where she travelled for the first time in the late 1920s.
