Powerful Dancing infused by Spanish Charisma
Choreography: Chiara Ajkun
Music: Ludwig Minkus
A Night at the Ballet could not be more appealing than spent watching Don Quixote. The tale of two young lovers, Kitri and Basilio, infused with the vibrancy of Spain. The music filled with sounds of guitars and tambourines and the dancing, leaps and turns of flirtatious Gypsies and Toreadors masterly choreographed by Chiara Ajkun on the score of Leon Minkus. Charming, exhilarating and plain funny, it calls for pure entertainment.
