Gonzalo Galguera
Magdeburgo Ballet leader (Germany) Gonzalo Galguera and soloists of that company will again be in contact with a public at the 20th international ballet festival perfectly prepared by Alicia Alonso.

The festival debuted Monday in the Havana Mella Theater -- with capacity for two thousand spectators - and there are two venues, Havana Grand Theater and the National Theater.

The first is located in the historic center of Havana and a Cultural Heritage and the other is in Revolution Plaza, where mass demonstrations take place.

Born and raised in Cuba as a dancer, Galguera has been on dissimilar stages, from Peru to Madrid, passing through Komische Opera in Berlin, artistic director of Dessau Ballet, where he developed extensive choreography.

In Germany, where he finally settled, he assumed direction of the Magdeburgo company in 2006. He has brought to the festival three ballet works of his own: "Espina, suave espina," "A los aires," and "Peregrinos."

Peregrinos is the best of Galguera as choreographer.

The show also had a representation of the best of Cuban's Ballet School, such as Veronica Corveas and Jose Losada ("Diana y Acteon"), and Hayna Gutierrez and Elier Bourzac ("El cisne negro pas de deux"), as well as Barbara Garcia and Joel Carreno.

The evening closed with the flamenco of Spanish dancer Maria Juncal.
