  • Ballet Nacional de Cuba in Havana Vieja - Cuba
Location :
Gran teatro de la Habana, 458 Paseo de Martí, Ciudad de La Habana, Cuba
The widely acclaimed Ballet Nacional de Cuba has long been recognized as being on a par with the historic European or Russian ballet schools. Check out one of the almost 100 complete ballets that comprise the repertoire of this prestigious company. Making it all the more special is the fact that the grande dame of Cuban ballet, Alicia Alonso, is still the director and choreographer here. A living dance legend, born in 1921, she founded the Ballet Nacional de Cuba in 1960. She hasn’t stopped since, despite a lifelong battle with debilitating blindness. The home of the Cuban National Ballet is the famous Teatro Nacional de Cuba in the Plaza de la Revolución.
