  • Description

    THE 10 CUBAN MALE BALLET DANCERS GRANTED PROVISIONAL PERMISSION BY THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT TO REMAIN IN FRANCE SAID LAST NIGHT (SATURDAY) THAT THEIR DECISION HAD NO POLITICAL MOTIVATION. THE GROUP HAVE CONTACTED FRENCH BALLET TROUPES IN THE HOPE OF OBTAINING WORK IN PARIS.

    THE GROUP ISSUED A PRESS COMMUNIQUE STATING: "WE ARE NOT OPPOSED TO THE REVOLUTIONARY ACTION OF THE PRESENT REGIME. BUT WE DEPLORE THE ARBITRARY PERSECUTION WHICH HAS DEVELOPED IN OUR COUNTRY -- CONTRARY TO THE VERY PRINCIPLES OF THE REVOLUTION -- WHICH AFFECTS ANYBODY SHOWING THE LEAST SIGN OF NON-CONFORMISM EITHER IN HIS WAY OF LIFE, HIS RELIGIOUS OPINIONS, OR SIMPLY HIS CLOTHES."
    MEANWHILE, THE REST OF THE 75-STRONG COMPANY IS FLYING TONIGHT TO BUDAPEST, FOLLOWING A SUCCESSFUL WEEK AT PARIS' THEATRE DES CHAMPS ELYSEE, TO CONTINUE THEIR EUROPEAN TOUR. THE DEFECTORS ARE REPORTED TO HAVE FAIRLY MINOR ROLES IN THE BALLET, AND ONLY ONE OF THEM IS MARRIED, HAVING LEFT HIS WIFE AT HOME IN CUBA.
