By: Jennifer Socorro Ramon. 25 de julio de 2011, 11:45. Salvador de Bahia, Jul 25 (Prensa Latina) Cuban National Ballet´s "La leyenda del agua grande" (The Legend of the Big Water), directed by Prima Ballerina Alicia Alonso, has had a huge success in Brazil during a tour that has included performances in Brasilia and Salvador de Bahia, and will conclude in Sao Paulo, sponsored by the Brazilian Cultural Cooperative.

The ballet is inspired on a Guarani myth on the origin of the Iguazu falls. The ballet, choreographed by Eduardo Blanco, starts from a classic basic technique which adds, in an organic way, expressions of the contemporary dance and Guarani folklore.

Prima ballerina Barbara Garcia dances the heroine roll, Naipi, and offers a touching portrait of the character. Multiple details in her performance, accompanied by a brilliant technique, take the audience from the resignation for the sacrifice of the beginning to a sudden impulse of freedom that her love for Toroba provokes in her.

The CNB tour ends on July 30th and during its last stage will perform 5 times in Sao Paulo.
