American Ballet Theates Travels to Cuba After 50 Year Hiatus

Tuesday, November 09, 2010

The American Ballet Theatre traveled to Cuba for the first time in 50 years to participate in the 22nd Havana International Ballet Festival. The last time the dance company took the stage in Cuba, Fidel Castro had just taken power. We hear music from the Karl Marx theatre and talk with Rachel Moore, the executive director of the American Ballet Theatre, about the trip.

Guests:

Rachel Moore

Produced by:

Wish I could take a trip to Cuba to get some reasonably priced basic medical and dental care. Glad we are allowing our artists to share their gifts in Cuba.

End the embargo!
