PAD01 | Don Quixote (excerpts) by Hong Kong Ballet* (In Cantonese) (Completed)parent


Bursting with balletic fireworks and bravura steps, this exuberant production of Don Quixote abounds with love, illusion, daring, and adventure in the colourful streets of Spain. The idealistic, eccentric Don Quixote goes on a quest full of adventures with his loyal squire Sancho Panza in search of his perfect woman, Dulcinea – while real-life lovers Kitri and Basilio battle against all odds to unite in true love.

This ballet is a tour de force, requiring the dancers to tackle some of the most technically demanding choreography in classical ballet with gravity-defying jetes, fearless lifts and impressive pirouettes. Based on Cervantes' iconic Spanish novel, Don Quixote is a must-see ballet for all ages – a glorious dance spectacle packed with virtuoso dancing, gorgeous costumes, a fanciful storyline and a lively cast of characters.

Remark: The presentation of this excerpt from Don Quixote will take the form of a rehearsal with a short programme introduction. It may briefly pause at times if necessary. 

*The programme is offered by the arts group in support of “2020/21 School Culture Day Scheme”
