Alicia Alonso''s Cuban National Ballet (BNC) is expected to premiere in
Brazil in July a piece by choreographer Eduardo Blanco inspired in the
Guarani legend on the origin of the Iguazu waterfalls, the waters of
which bathe the border between Brazil and Argentina.

The piece, which will be previewed on Saturday in Havana, is schedule
to run in Foz Iguazu city, near the falls, and then tour Sao Paulo,
Brasilia, Campinas and Porto Alegre, according to BNC sources.

Entitled "Legend of the Waters," Blanco conceived the ballet in two
acts. This is a co-production by the BNC and the Brazilian Cultural
Cooperative, with a script by Frank Alvarez and set design by Salvador

It tells the story of the love between warrior Taroba and the beautiful
Naipi, who was doomed to be sacrificed to a monster of the Guarani
mythology, Mboi Tui. The monster breaks a giant rock and the waterfalls
flow in their nature's thundering splendour.
