The Music Hall is proud to welcome back Safe Haven Ballet as they present their full-length premiere of Don Quixote!
Based on the classic novel, The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha by Miguel de Cervantes, you will be transported to Barcelona, Spain as Don Quixote, driven by dreams of chivalry and the visionary lady of his heart, Dulcinea, sets off on an adventure to bring glory and honor to his name. In his travels, he meets Kitri, who he initially believes is his Dulcinea. Kitri, however, is in love with Basilio, against her father’s wishes. The three-act ballet tells the tale of Don Quixote’s quest to find his love, and ultimately, his aspiration to help Kitri marry the man of her heart.
Artistic Director Lissa Curtis will lead the cast of dancers performing the lead role of Kitri, and will share the stage with returning freelance guest artist Joseph LaChance performing the role of Basilio. With narration provided by the character Dulcinea, this comedic, high-energy performance featuring dazzling costumes, music, and choreography is an event not to be missed!
