Love don’t Acost-a thing
Carlos Acosta’s A Classical Farwell has just finished its UK tour: A two part show with over ten different performances beautifully executed by Carlos and his team of young Cuban ballet talent. The show visited Royal Concert Hall Nottingham, Birmingham Hippodrome, Mayflower Southampton, and The Lowry Salford before the cast and crew flew back to Havana.
The tour was incredibly successful with Carlos astounding audiences with his athletic and graceful leaps as well as pleasing their eyes with his body and charisma, further the Manchester Camerata orchestra provided fantastic live music, and the Cuban ballet dancers brought energy, emotion, and beauty to the UK stages.
Pictured above are some of the dancers with producer Sandra.
