Havana, (AIN).- The Canadian government agreed to celebrate, for the first time, the Day of the Family and a high point of that day will be the presentation of Hansel and Gretel, by the Cuban National Ballet (BNC, after its initials in Spanish).
The function, at the Hamilton Place theatre in Canada, will be held next 26 of February and will present young figures of the Cuban company, with the choreography of Eduardo Blanco and under the general direction of the prima ballerina assoluta, Alicia Alonso.
Hansel and Gretel has the music of Jules Massenet, Richard Wagner, Sergui Prokofiev and Joseph Luigini, design by Ricardo Reymena, Eduardo Romero and Luis Carlos Benvenuto and will have a young cast of the Canadian Ballet in this version of one act and five scenes.
This ballet is an unshakable ode to the human spirit and was written and published for the first time in 1812 in his born Germany, by the brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm.
The famous fairy tale has fascinated generation of children. This time the main characters of the play will be performed by Yadil Suarez, Regina Hernandez, Annie Ruiz, Denisse Salvent and Yonah Acosta.
It is unquestionably that the ballet Hansel and Gretel is made exactly to celebrate the Family Day in Canada.
The allegorical fantasy is an splendid artistic cooperation between the two countries.
