HAVANA, Cuba, Nov 19 (ACN) The Acosta Danza Company, founded and directed by First Dancer Carlos Acosta, will present its season "Destinations" at the Gran Teatro de La Habana Alicia Alonso, on November 30, December 1 and 2.
The program of these performances will be composed of two works that describe the company's career, reports Lester Vila Pereira, press director of the group.
He adds that the public attending the theater will be able to enjoy the revival of the Carmen ballet, an original creation by Carlos Acosta, inspired by the novel of the same name by the Frenchman Prosper Mérimée.
This work, which tells the tragic love story between a gypsy woman and a soldier, uses the music created by Georges Bizet, Tim Hatley's wardrobe design and Peter Munford's lights.
They will also dance Satori, a ballet created by Raúl Reinoso that narrates an inner journey towards spiritual enlightenment. The music of this choreography is an original score by Pepe Gavilondo. The piece features costumes and décor by Curaçao designer Angelo Alberto and lights by Italian artist Fabiana Piccioli.
Tickets will be on sale from Tuesday 27 November at nine o'clock in the morning at the Gran Teatro box office.
