I saw the brilliant Groupo Nacional de Ballet perform. Excellent. They dance as well or better than their teachers from years back. Oh those Russians....

The theater is not old. It was built in the 50's and opened in 1959. It has had some renovations as shown in the brand new seats. The performances, ballet, opera, zarzuela, etc. are very good and the stage is excellent. The prices could not b e better 10 CUCs (US$11) for tourists and 10 CUPs (US$0.50) for nationals. The only drawback was that one of the bathrooms was broken and the other had to be share by males and females. Of course, not together but taking their turns in a line.

Major restoration going on at the Gran Teatro and surrounding buildings. Beware of the locals out hawking their wares. Good photo op but nothing more.

I have had the pleasure of visiting the Gran Teatro on many occasions. I have seen the wonderful world class ballets.
The Gran Teatro is now being renovated and its suppose to open again sometime during the summer 2014.
Somehow I think it will take longer.

Jumped off the double-decker bus during a 15 minute pause to see if we could get tickets to something. Walked all around the building. Bad luck...in restoration (until when?). But an incredible building from the outside. Lucky to get back on the tour bus. Someday. Wouldn't it be nice...
