The Grand Théâtre in Luxembourg is to host two performances of the Sadler’s Wells Production “Vamos Cuba!” on Thursday 16 November and Friday 17 November 2017 at 20:00
Vamos Cuba!

The productuion will feature 14 dancers, 2 singers and 9 musicians

Those enthralled by the colour, vibrance and energy of Havana Rakatan when it was performed at the Grand Théâtre in 2012, will be delighted that the creators of the smash-hit dance sensation are back with Vamos Cuba!. This spectacular production by acclaimed choreographer Nilda Guerra embodies the special Cuban relationship with music and rhythm. Set in the crazy chaos of Havana airport, where families are parted, lovers reunited, and time flies: this is a place of new beginnings and old romances, where reality calls and dreams take flight. Experience the joys and vibrancy of Cuban life with all the passion and humour that embodies the Cuban spirit. Vamos Cuba! is brought to life by the best dancers Cuba has to offer. They elegantly embrace an exuberant mix of traditional and modern dance styles including salsa, rumba, cha-cha-cha and reggaeton, moving to live music from a band led by Julito Padron.
