Ballet Philippines' Don Quixote

source: ballet philippines
Ballet Philippines closes its 41st season with the well-loved classical ballet, Don Quixote, at the CCP Main Theater (Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo). This production runs for one weekend only, from February 17 to February 20, 2011.

Derived from Miguel de Cervantes’ novel, the ballet show follows the adventures of an aging gentleman, Don Quixote, into Barcelona and the story of the young lovers Kitri and Basilio. Don Quixote meets Kitri, the innkeeper’s daughter, whom he thinks is his love Dulcinea. The story caps off as the pair performed one of the most popular dance duet, the Grand Pas de Deux.

It's a grand production that brings together the impressive cast of local and international ballet artists. Candice Adea, Ballet Philippines' principal dancer, plays the role of Kitri. Houston Ballet's principal dancer, Connor Walsh performs as Basilio on a limited engagement.  The Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, under the baton of Maestro Olivier Ochanine, performs Leon Minkus’ music live on its evening shows. The entire production is indeed amazing! 



Since I have 6 Upper Box tickets from Ballet Philippines, my mom, my sisters and my daughter, were able to watch the February 17 8 pm gala performance.
