Everybody knows that Cuban classic Ballet, Alicia Alonso is one of the best in the world, I've been here many times in this theater, also presenting Spanish style company ballet like Lizt Alfonso Dance. Definitely a place to remember.

The Grand Theatre is stunning. The architecture is amazing just what you would expect in Havana. The theatre right next to El Capitolio and across the road from the square.

Cuba is different- I suggest when you get there; either use your guide or find a guide to help you out!
