Carlos was trained through the Cuban state ballet system and danced at the Bolshoi when he was just 16. He is now acknowledged globally as one of the finest dancers of his generation.
Indisputably one of the greatest male dancers of this generation, Carlos Acosta returns to the London Coliseum for five performances only, with a new show presenting highlights of his glorious career. Carlos Acosta has thrilled audiences throughout the world with his breathtaking performances, including principal roles in almost every ballet in the classical repertoire. Performing a range of pas de deux from the classical canon, Acosta is joined on stage by some of his favourite dance partners in this awe-inspiring evening. Currently performing as a Principal Guest Artist with The Royal Ballet, Acosta's past productions have played to sell-out audiences and have been lauded by critics and audiences alike. In 2007 he won an Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dance for his performance in his 2006 programme, Carlos Acosta with Guests of The Royal Ballet.
