Excerpt: “It will be a joy to watch particularly because well over one hundred Canadian youngsters are about to share the stage with the Cuban performers. The local talent will assume the roles of dancing flowers, witches, cats and otherworldly visions in a production that promises to fulfill the most demanding wishes of the audience.”
