Culture and canvas collide: Ballet extravaganza and Art & Wine fusion. mage: Teatro Principal de Alicante.
Ballet fans are in for a cultural treat!
Alicante has proudly announced it is hosting Don Quijote performed by the National Ballet of Cuba on April 23.
The National Ballet of Cuba holds a prestigious position as the Caribbean island’s foremost dance and ballet institution.
It stands as the evolved form of the Cuban Ballet School, born from the collaboration of Fernando Alonso, the legendary dancer Alicia Alonso, and Alberto Alonso, Cuba’s first professional dancer.
Established in 1948 under the name Ballet Alicia Alonso, the institution evolved, and in 1950, the Alicia Alonso National Ballet Academy was born, nurturing new talents in Cuban dance.
Despite the need for reorganisation after the Cuban revolution, the 1960s witnessed a surge in activity and visibility.
Some performances were even filmed and broadcast on Cuban television, contributing significantly to its popularity among the masses.
