As the ballet dancer makes his last performances for the Royal Ballet, he will join us for a live webchat on Tuesday 1 December – post your questions for him below
Carlos Acosta has the kind of fairytale story that might make for a good ballet one day: the hard-knock life in Havana giving way to the discipline of dance, and a glittering career across the world’s stages.
His tempestuous yet graceful style made him a regular romantic lead, first working in Cuba and Houston in the mid 1990s before embarking on a 17-year career with the Royal Ballet – one that is coming to an end this year with a final production of Carmen, and a selection of his finest work at London’s Coliseum. Acosta is then retiring from classical ballet, but will continue to perform contemporary work, and will perhaps do more writing following his acclaimed first novel in 2013.
