JOBURG BALLET presents DON QUIXOTE (info)


Joburg Ballet is proud to present two of the world’s most distinguished ballet stars – Marianela Nuñez and Vadim Muntagirov of The Royal Ballet – in the great 19th century ballet, Don Quixote. Set in the bustling Spanish seaport of Barcelona, this scintillating classic tells the story of beautiful, audacious Kitri and her love for the dashing but poor barber, Basilio. Her father, however, has more ambitious plans for his headstrong daughter, hoping to marry her off to a wealthy but foppish suitor. But in the end love conquers all in a dazzling cascade of classical ballet featuring celebrated showpieces, including the famous Don Quixote Pas de Deux. The Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra will be in the orchestra pit to bring to life one of the most sparkling music scores ever created for ballet.
