Tribute to Sarita Montiel: 55 Years After El Último Cuplé

Friday, May 4, 2012 @ 7 pm

Fifty-five years have gone by since Sara Montiel sang with her deep voice her famous “Fumando espero” in the 1957 film El Último Cuplé, followed by La Violetera in 1958, the year she would visit Havana for the third time and, indeed, conquer with her “gracia, talento y salero” the entire Island.

From that moment on, the Spanish actress became not only a beloved celebrity icon to all Cubans, but also a diva of Mexican cinema, and later of Hollywood, starring with the likes of Gary Cooper, Burt Lancaster and Charles Bronson, among others.

In this special tribute to this cult figure, Sarita will share with the audience some of her life and work experiences, and her memories of Cuba, as well as sing some of her famous cuplés.

Reception to follow.
