National Ballet to Dedicate Performance to Cuba-China Relations

The National Ballet of Cuba will dedicate a special performance to the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Cuba and China on September 10 at the Great Theater of Havana.

The program incorporates both classical and contemporary choreographies, among them Danzantes, a work by prima ballerina Alicia Alonso inspired by the music of figures of the Chinese culture Reng Guang and Huan Yijun.

The presentation also includes Las silfides (The Sylphs), Alonso’s version of Mijail Fokin’s ballet with designs by Salvador Fernandez on those by Alexander Benois, who is one of the artists behind the theatrical and scenographic conceptions Diaghilev’s Russian ballets.

The show will close with another work by Alonso, Dido abandonada (Abandoned Dido), based on the homonymous piece by Gaspero Angiolini, who is also the author of the music and libretto.
