Along with Armenian Tigran
Mikayelyan, leading dancer of the Munich Opera, the Cuban artist
showed her excellent technique in “Aguas primaverales” first,
with choreography by Asaf Messerer, and later in “Don Quixote,”
an original by Marius Petipa, with music by Ludwing Minkus.
Dancers from another four countries offered their art in 11
presentations, among them the “Tchaikovsky pas de deux,” also
praised by the public, with the interpretations of Argentinean
Paloma Herrera (American Ballet Theatre) and US dancer Amar
Ramasar (New York City Ballet).
A special moment of the gala was the farewell as dancer of
Portuguese Bevindo Fonseca, who, at 48 and after a hard
four-year process of recovery due to surgery on his hip,
performed “Renace” and “Makeba.”
