The most recent generation of the Cuban National Ballet took the stage of Havanas Gran Teatro recently, and demonstrated the high level with which the young dancers come out of the art school system in the Island.

The members of the corps de ballet assumed very professionally and with much class the world premiere of Salmos (Psalms), the most recent choreography of Eduardo Blanco with which the author aims to show love feelings as a summary of human emotions.

Texts by Walt Whitman and U.S. folklore in a Spanish version made by Eliseo Diego and Cintio Vitier are included in the musical production by José María Vitier that corresponds to the seventh psalm of his piece Salmo de las Américas (Psalm from America).

After just a few months in the company, the same as her colleagues from the corps de ballet, Regina Hernández earned well deserved applauses in her debut together with the first dancer Joel Carreño in the pas de deux El Corsario (The Corsair).

The will to make art overflowed the interpretation of a Carreño filled with energy, who got from the spectators exclamations and ovations for the precision of the jumps and turns, majesty and grace.

Danzas de Mozart (Dances from Mozart), Tablada, Danzantes (Dancers) and the Coppelia pas de deux completed the program whose main trait was the freshness of a cast who grabbed well the opportunity to represent with dignity all of the already acclaimed artists who are currently abroad.

The Cuban National Ballet with its general director Alicia Alonso is currently making a tour around Spain, where they began their performances past Saturday on the island of Mayorca, before following to the city of Valencia and then to Madrid, before finishing next May 20th.
