Carlos Acosta – On Before

Carlos Acosta is the world’s favourite dancer and On Before, which sees him dance a full-length show again, is a homage to his late mother and the most personal work he has ever created.

In a framework created by Carlos, On Before tells the story of a doomed relationship between a man and a woman, set to a diverse musical repertoire ranging from Handel to Cuban contemporary composer Omar Puente and culminating in a moving finale featuring a live choir performing Morten Lauridsen’s O Magnum Mysterium.

Originally conceived in 2010, Carlos is revisiting this extraordinary show and returning to dance it again for a short regional tour as theatres across the UK re-open their doors again. For 2021 Carlos Acosta will dance alongside Laura Rodriguez, an original member of his own company, Acosta Danza, which he founded in Cuba in 2015.
