The event will also include another two ballet pieces by Alonso: Elegy to a Youth, dedicated to Fabio di Celmo, an Italian youngster victim of a terrorist act perpetrated against a Havana hotel and Al Encontrarse (Encounter), inspired in the meeting of Ernesto Che Guevara and Aleida March.

Also part of the performance is a ballet piece by Chilean Hilda Riveros, and the pas de Deux Spartacus, as well as Las Llamas de Paris (Paris in Flames) inspired in the French Revolution.
