Huber Matos: Cuban revolution leader dies in Miami at 95

Huber Matos (R) was one of the 1959 main leaders, 
alongside Camilo Cienfuegos (L) and Fidel Castro (C)

 

The only exiled dissident among the original leaders of the 1959 Cuban revolution, Huber Matos, has died in Miami at the age of 95.

He was arrested in 1960 and sentenced to 20 years in jail for sedition.Human rights groups campaigned for his case until his release and expulsion from Cuba in 1979.

Mr Matos eventually settled in Florida after a period in Costa Rica, where his remains are to be taken after a funeral in Miami.Mr Matos fought the troops of general Fulgencio Batista in 1959 alongside Fidel Castro but later fell out with the communist leader. A statement released by relatives said Mr Matos had died on 27 February at Miami's Kendall Regional Hospital of a massive heart attack he had suffered two days earlier.

'Return to Cuba'

The former revolutionary fighter's funeral will be in Miami on Sunday before his remains are taken to Costa Rica, as he had wished. Born in Yara in 1918, Huber Matos graduated as a teacher in Santiago, before pursuing a PhD in the capital, Havana.

 

The first time Costa Rica welcomed him was in 1957, when he had to leave Cuba because of his opposition of the rule of Gen Fulgencio Batista.Sentenced to 20 years in prison for sedition, he was released in 1979 and immediately left for San Jose, Costa Rica. 

Mr Matos eventually settled in Miami, where he became involved in Cuban politics. The former military commander considered the government led by Fidel and Raul Castro a "dictatorship".(FraM Martins).

This Baroque fantasy returns to the Met after its well-received world premiere in 2011 to 2012. The starry cast is led by Susan Graham as Sycorax with Placido Domingo as Neptune. The opera brings together the music of Handel, Purcell, Vivaldi and others, and is set to a new English libretto that was inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.(FraM Martins).
