Hong Kong Ballet (HKB) will return to heat up the fall and kick off its 2020/21 Season with the captivating dance spectacle Don Quixote.
Based on the Petipa classic from 1869, this uplifting family-friendly production from Nina Ananiashvili, set in sunny Spain, first took the stage in 2014 and later in 2017, winning numerous awards and rave reviews from critics and audiences alike. With its delightful mashup of comedy, fantasy, technically demanding choreography and brilliant costumes inspired by flamenco, gypsies and bullfighting, there’s no better production to welcome audiences back after HKB’s eight-month hiatus. Don Quixote’s opening performance will take place on 30 October 2020 at Hong Kong Cultural Centre.
Based on Cervantes’ literary classic of the same name, the story centres around Don Quixote, the gallant eponymous hero, embarking a remarkable adventure with his loyal servant Sancho Panza in pursuit of chivalric romance. On their journey, the duo meet the spirited Kitri and Basilio, who express their love with one of the most famous and challenging pas de deux of all time, spicing up intricate classical choreography with some exotic Spanish flair. The most popular romantic comedy in ballet, the heartwarming Don Quixote promises great fun and humour with its vibrant dancing and unforgettable characters.
