Ballet teacher Sergei Polunin teaches Alexander Agadzhanov of the Royal Ballet and invited Cuban dancer Arrencibia during rehearsal on July 15, 2009, in Havana, Cuba. With its first visit to Cuba, the Royal Ballet of London also marks the first visit by an international dance company to the communist island in over 30 years. Performing five times between July 14-18, 2009 at the Gran Teatro and Karl Marx theatre, the company, who brought 96 dancers to Havana, performed both classical and avant-garde productions like ‘Chroma’, some of which the likes have never been seen on a Cuban stage. The company also made a tribute to Alicia Alonso and include dancers from the Cuban National Ballet. The week’s final performance was Kenneth Macmillan’s dramatic rendition of ‘Manon.’ Thousands of those who could not get tickets were able to follow the performances projected live on gigantic TV screens from the steps of Havana’s El Capitolio.
