Alonso declared in Cairo to the Spanish press agency EFE that "One never finishes projects definitely, so I am thinking of living 200 more years in order to do everything that I still have left to do."

"It is magic. It is a place with an incredible past where art is present next to a fabulous history. It is a privilege for the public," expressed the dancer who said that despite her age (86 years) she tries to travel together with her company every time it goes on tour.

The Cuban National Ballet will also present another performance of Don Quixote in the city of Alexandria, and afterwards it will travel next April 14 to Spain, were it will start a tour around several cities, including Valencia, Barcelona and Leon.
