Havana, Aug 24.- Tamara Rojo of Spain dances today in Cuba and many local ballet lovers hope they will find tickets to see her in theaters.
The Spanish glory rehearses these days at the headquarters of the National Ballet of Cuba some excerpts from his upcoming release, The Corsair, in version of U.S. choreographer Anne-Marie Holmes.
Just a year ago and in artistic fulfillment, Rojo accepted the challenge of leading the second most important company in Britain, the English National Ballet (ENB) and she incorporated the role of director to the multiple roles of her repertoire.
Her choice for the post was a total bet to the intellectual capacity of the Master of Arts and Bachelor of Dance at the University Rey Juan Carlos (Madrid), an attempt to give life to the English company at the height of its financial history.
The only way I can ensure the survival of ENB is to make a company different than the Royal, with its own characteristics, choreographies created for it and a level of excellence, told she to Prensa Latina.
The director's eyes sparkle when she talks about the forthcoming proposals of ENB: Nutcracker replenishment and a program entitled Lest We Forget, in commemoration of the centennial of World War I, composed of four new creations of great choreographers.
Rojo will also dance Romeo and Juliet in London alongside a partner very recurrent in her career, Cuban Carlos Acosta, principal dancer of the Royal Ballet, the company to which both gave much glory for more than a decade.
The energy of this 39 year-old woman very well concealed and the flow of ideas articulated in matters of seconds, on any subject, induce an omen or certainty: we still see the prelude to his great career.(Prensa Latina)
