Truly the origin of Cuban dance, the Ballet Nacional de Cuba company has operated for many years with an impressive professionalism. It’s based in the fabulous Gran Teatro de La Habana Alicia Alonso, which recently underwent an impressive update. This place is history and elegance, the birthplace of Cuban ballet. Buy tickets as soon as they go on sale, on Tuesdays. Try for a seat at the center, where you can best hear the orchestra see the dancers' expressions.
The Gran Teatro de La Habana is the former Centro Gallego. Designed by the Belgian architect Paul Belau and the U.S. firm of Purdy and Henderson, Engineers, was paid for by the Galician immigrants of Havana to serve as a their community- social center.
This theater is internationally recognized for the quality of theater, ballet and music companies that have passed through its stages.
The Great Theater of Havana "Alicia Alonso", headquarters of the National Ballet of Cuba, is one of the main cultural institutions of the Cuban capital and architecturally one of the icons of the city.
This beautiful venue used to be called the Great Theatre of Havana, recently renamed Alicia Alonso Theatre, after the prima ballerina for decades of the world renowned Cuban National Ballet Company. If you are interested in ballet or opera performances look out for the programme on the billboard.
