Photographer Lauge Sorenson has some beautiful photos and a short article about Cuban ballerina Viengsay Valdes here.
I visited Havana in 2013 and absolutely loved it; unfortunately the ballet was on summer break at the time and so it is my dream to return and see them perform. I was staying just around the corner from the Teatro Nacional and so that beautiful building was the backdrop to my trip. I was able to do some research into Alicia Alonzo and picked up some gorgeous memorabilia from the book and poster stalls in Havana.
And at home in London, I need to see Britain’s favourite Cuban, Carlos Acosta with the Royal Ballet – and his cousin Jonah who is performing with ENB!
