El Gran Teatro de la Habana is home to the Ballet Nacional de Cuba (Cuban National Ballet Company), one of the most famous ballet companies in the world. While I was there, I was lucky enough to see them performing the "Swan Lake"! Breathtaking really...
By the way, if this is what Cuban costume designers can do... I can't wait for them to open up shop and start their own fashion labels! But then again... Narciso Rodriguez and Isabel Toledo are from Cuban descent... so that shouldn't come as a surprise!
Ask the concierge (Relaciones Públicas) in your hotel for the current programme & how to book tickets. In case you speak Spanish, you can just go the ticket office yourself. Two more things: make sure you dress up, everybody does! And bring a hand-held fan, since there is no air conditioning.
