Cuban dancer Carlos Acosta is no longer that rebellious boy that got involved in the world of ballet by chance. Yet, he still has that intrepid nature, the same one that had him return to Cuba to create his own company.
At his 42 years of age, and having conquered the world with England’s Royal Ballet School, Acosta has returned to the Cuban stages with his long-cherished ambition: to create a company able to cope with the most diverse styles, he said.
And he seems very close to making his dream come true. After only a few months of work and with very young dancers –some of them never having played a leading role before-, the Acosta Danza Company has captivated ballet lovers with their clean technique and the passion of its members.
Choreographed by Carlos Acosta, a genuinely Cuban version of Carmen with Cuban folkloric rhythms demonstrated the talent of Luis Valle in his role as Escamillo and made Laura Treto grow on the stage.
As it was to be expected, the ”rebellious boy” of the Cuban ballet captivated the audience once more with his strong steps, masculine movements and spectacular turns and jumps that have made him famous throughout the world.Share on FB Share on TT
