Carlos Acosta in Santiago de Cuba

Our Cuban ballet dancer Carlos Acosta kicks off his first national tour of Cuba last Sunday at the Heredia Theater in Santiago, fulfilling a longstanding desire of the artist and his fans.

The renowned artist, principal guest artist of the Royal Ballet of London, performed "Suite of dances," by Jerome Robbins, as the feature piece of the program, accompanied by Cuban cello player Amparo del Riego and ballerinas Viengsay Valdes and Laura Rios.

His tour will cover the cities of Camaguey on November 23, Cienfuegos on November 25 and Pinar del Rio on November 27, and conclude in Havana on November 30.

In statements to the press, the young dancer said performances in the country’s east, center and west were his settling of an old debt with his audience in Cuba, where his intensive and successful career is followed and admired.

This Cuban dancer has worked with prestigious companies such as the American Ballet Theatre, the Houston Ballet, the English National Ballet, and the Bolshoi Ballet.

After this long-awaited tour of Cuba, Acosta will return to the Royal Ballet to resume his regular performances with Giselle, Swan Lake, Manon, and the show Premier, which will be presented across the United Kingdom.
