About the event
An amalgamation of many ballet favorites, this program features selections from Don Quixote, Masquerade, Gayane, Spartacus, and Spring Waters.
Masquerade is a ballet that tells a captivating story of love, deception, and mystery set in the opulent world of a grand masquerade ball. The plot revolves around a beautiful and enigmatic woman who attends the ball in disguise, capturing the attention and hearts of the male guests, including a passionate suitor. As the night unfolds, secrets are revealed, and the true identities of the characters emerge, leading to a dramatic climax. With exquisite choreography and lavish costumes, Masquerade explores themes of hidden desires and the complexities of human emotions, creating a visually stunning and emotionally charged ballet experience.
Don Quixote is a classic ballet inspired by Miguel de Cervantes' novel Don Quixote. The story follows the adventures of the eccentric and idealistic Don Quixote and his loyal squire, Sancho Panza. Quixote, convinced he is a knight on a noble quest, sets out to find his idealized lady love, Dulcinea. Along the way, they encounter a vibrant cast of characters, including a spirited young couple, Kitri and Basilio, who are in love but face obstacles to their union. The ballet is a colorful and lively showcase of virtuosic dancing, with a blend of Spanish flair and classical ballet, featuring grand pas de deux and exciting ensemble numbers. Don Quixote is a celebration of love, chivalry, and the power of imagination.THE THEATRE
