“Excellent modern dance performance”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

The quality, the energy, the choreography, and the music made this a memorable night. A bit pricey but certainly worth it.

“Great ballet, beautiful theatre.”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

The theatre itself is worth to see inside, it is truly beautiful! During the intermission, you can go to their courtyard bar to have a drink under the stars, very nice! I saw a ballet gala with several numbers from various ballets and a one-act ballet based on Jose Marti book, mostl of the numbers were by Alicia Alonso, and I liked the evening very much. Madam Alonso herself was in the audience, so that made the evning even more special. The dancers are very good and choreographies are original. Madan Alonso also truly understands how to make a choreograpy for male dancers, that is rare! This is not just another ballet company, it has a character of its own. The only thing I didn't like so much was the fact that they performed without orchestra, the music came from cd via loud speakers.

“It is unfortunate the state of this beautiful building”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

You can visit the building (not the concert hall) for a couple bucks. You'll only be able to go to the first floor's reception but that great hall is wonderful. You may be able to see dancers practicing on a side hall. It is a shame that such a wonderful building looks so run down, but it is still worth a visit.
There are nice views of the Parque Central and the Capitolio from the balconies.

“Ballet 'The Nutcracker'”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We watched one of the last performances at this famous venue before refurbishment works commence. A real treat, wonderful dancing, music and costumes combined to make this a night to remember. A great bargain, too.
