Cuba-born ballet dancer Amilcar Moret will dance along Letizia Giuliani, performer who was born in Havana and studied at the National Ballet Cuban School. In 1995 he won the bronze medal at the International Ballet and Choreography Competition in Helsinki and in 1996, he won the gold medal at the International Dance Competition in Paris. During his career he was part of ballet companies Le Jeune Ballet de France, Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo led by Heinz Spoerli, and in 2006 he joined Hamburg Ballet led by John Neumeier as premier danseur.
The Women project was born for Gheorghe Iancu since the period he was dancing in Italy along the famous prima ballerina Carla Fracci. In 2002, when Maggio Musicale Fiorentino (Italy) ordered the work to the maestro, the famous ballerina, even if she had not yet retired, could not honour his invitation. Therefore, Gheorghe Iancu was looking for a new star, a fresh figure, because the lead role, Masa, required that. “One day, as I was passing along an open door where people were rehearsing, I turned my head and I saw a “creature,” in the air who was drawing some lines in a manner I had never seen before. I took three steps back on that corridor, I stopped in front of the door and for five minutes I remained motionless. She was Letizia Giuliani, about 18 years old then,” recalls Gheorghe Iancu, quoted by Hotnews.
