Hansel & Gretel, Cuban National Ballet and the CBYE, Feb 26, Hamilton

A great ballet by one of the world’s greatest ballet companies, the Cuban National Ballet… the company led by Alicia Alonso for so long… presented together with the Canadian Ballet Youth Ensemble.

These two companies recently combined for a presentation of The Nutcracker by the Cuban international stars and by our local heroes at the world-famous Gran Teatro in Havana in January 2010

“It was standing room only. Tickets for all three performances sold out in one day. The Cuban public, among the most sophisticated ballet fans in the world, cheered enthusiastically and rewarded each performance with long, standing ovations. The Canadian children danced their hearts out and almost instantly became the darlings of the local and international media.”   (From a preview at Revista Debate.)

But tickets at ticketmaster.
