Alicia Alonso, at 91 years of age, has made a stage comeback at the 23rd Havana International Ballet Festival.
Prensa Latina reported that the Cuban ballet legend danced Un retrato para el recuerdo (A portrait to remember) with two of her former partners: Lazaro Carreño and Jorge Vega.
The news service said,
Alonso was again an exceptional actress, inspiring ovations throughout her performance and standing ovations afterwards.
It was a surprise for the public to see her once again in the arms of dance partners as the number was not pre-announced, and a great way to kick off the Festival, which runs until November 7.
