At the end of the show, she sent them an open letter, congratulating them for their wonderful performance. "Their essential warmth and generosity as artists have won them love from the audience in London," she said.
"Thank you for sharing your versatility and energy with us, with great love from your friends at the Royal Ballet," the letter concludes.
The London group announced that it would join the celebrations for the upcoming birthday anniversary of Alicia Alonso, with an honorary gala at the Covent Garden on October 15 and a special program that will include the dance Theme and Variations, which choreographer George Balanchine created for the Cuban Prima ballerina assoluta.
After concluding their performances in this capital, the Cuban National Ballet, under Alonso's direction, will continue its British tour at Lowry Theater in Manchester, from Wednesday until Saturday, April 17.
