Royal Albert Hall hosts a very special event – the first in a week of farewell performances for one of ballet’s biggest stars. Not a farewell to dance entirely, but his farewell to classical ballet. The dancer in question is Cuban Carlos Acosta; the programme a series of Pas de Deux and solos chosen to celebrate some of his memorable roles and his remarkable technique. The programme also highlights notable dance talent from Cuba. Acosta is accompanied by a full orchestra, choir, solo singers and eight principal dancers, mainly drawn from the Royal Ballet.
