“Following its run in Cuba, Alma: The Revolution of a Dream — complete with its local cast — is planning to hit New York City this spring with a possible national tour planned.”
"Alma... is a visual-sound epiphany that from the dance crosses part of the history of Cuba."
“The Afro-Cuban experience—from arrival on the island as enslaved people through to contemporary "solar habanero" life—is the subject of the new Cuban musical Alma. Following a sold-out world premiere recently at Teatro Nacional de Cuba, the dance show is expected to arrive in New York City in Spring 2023.”
On February 2022, The National Council of Scenic Arts gave us the majestic Fausto Theater, located at the heart of beatiful Havana, as hearquarters and production site to develop and produce Alma, the musical.
The theater has been closed for many many years. It took two full months and 25 people working around the clock to have the theater ready to hold our auditions. The whole process of recovering the Fausto was an experience i will never forget, and for which i will be forever grateful.
None of this would have been possible without the commitment and passion from every single person involved. What at first seemed as an impossible task proved that dreams do come true when the conviction and hard work is there, present. / Iván Belaustegui
