Royal Ballet Guest Principal Dancer Carlos Acosta returns with his exciting mixed programme of dance inspired by his homeland. The show reunites him with Alexander Varona, Veronica Corveas – Principal Dancer of Ballet Nacional de Cuba – Miguel Altunaga, Royal Ballet Principal Dancer Zenaida Yanowsky, and the acclaimed Danza Contemporanea de Cuba, all of whom help create a diverse first half of modern dance. The evening finishes with the exuberant Tocororro Suite, which was reimagined for its performance at the Royal Opera House in summer 2014 and will once again feature live music from Carlos’s Cuban House Band. It will be an evening of dance to remember for all fans of Carlos Acosta.
