Join Verb Ballets for an exclusive lunch time rehearsal viewing with Cuban dance legend Laura Alonso. The daughter of legendary ballet royalty Alicia Alonso, Laura Alonso is herself an award-winning ballet teacher with a 25-year career performing with Ballet Nacional de Cuba. Witness the artistic process as she sets the ballet Yarini– which has never been seen in America! Verb Ballets will travel to Havana, Cuba the next day for nearly three weeks to join ProDanza. Together the two ballet companies will join forces in an international collaboration to form the Cleveland Havana Ballet to present the Cuban ballet, YariniYarini is based on an historical hero who reached mythical proportions within popular Cuban culture and imagination. The ballet centers around Alberto Yarini, known as the Prince of Old Havana, Louis Lotot, Yarini’s notorious rival, and the women they loved. The ballet is set in Havana during the Cuban War of Independence against Spain; during Yarini’s rise to power that led to his inevitable tragic death in 1910. The battle highlights passion, power and struggles for freedoms that are the essence of the Cuban spirit. Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to see rehearsal before the company leaves for Cuba!
