The cast of Municipal Ballet of Lima returns to the scene with the majestic work “Don Quixote”, based on one of the episodes of “El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quixote de la Mancha”, famous novel by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. The story focuses on Kitri and the barber Basilio, young lovers, who must fight for their love against Lorenzo, the maiden’s father, and the wealthy Camacho, the wealthy suitor.
In these circumstances Don Quixote and Sancho appear and intervene in a series of events to help the lovers. This ballet premiered in Moscow in 1869, whose music belongs to Ludwig Minkus, and the choreography to Marius Petipa. It highlights the virtuosity and the difficulty of the variations in the solos of the main characters.
“Don Quixote” shows us a picturesque Spain of gypsies and bullfighters, it is perhaps the most representative work of Spanish dancefor presenting various dances such as the bolero, seguidilla, fandango, gypsy dances, and others, but keeping everything within the context of classical ballet.
It will be a short season at the Municipal Theater of Lima, where the dancers Oriana Plaza, Luciana Cárdenas, Solange Villacorta and Mara Casafranca will interpret the rebellious Kitri; while Rodrigo Blanco, Román González-Pardo and Frederick Ayllón will alternate the role of the barber Basilio. The character roles will fall to Jean Sánchez as the mythical Don Quixote, and to Eymer Inglessi and Ardaban Ausejo as the faithful squire Sancho Panza.
