Alicia Alonso, ballet’s last legend

The passing of Alicia Alonso leaves behind a trail destined to remain in history – that of a great and celebrated ballerina, above all, of a unique personality who, with her adamant willpower, was able to transform a faraway island in the Caribbean into one of the great lands of ballet in our times, with a school and a company of world renown: the Ballet Nacional de Cuba. So much has been said and written about her. Roger Salas delves into the origins of the Alonso legend.
