A Night at the Ballet could not be more appealing than spent watching Don Quixote. The tale of two young lovers, Kitri and Basilio, infused with the vibrancy of Spain. The music filled with sounds of guitars and tambourines and the dancing, leaps and turns of flirtatious Gypsies and Toreadors masterly choreographed by Chiara Ajkun on the score of Leon Minkus. Charming, exhilarating and plain funny, it calls for pure entertainment.
The performance is part of the Ajkun Ballet Theatre's Face to Face Series. Presented by the Artistic Director in the intimacy of our studios, this series affords the audience a close-up to the performers and the opportunity to meet fellow dance lovers and Company Dancers and take pictures with the performers at the end.
One hour with no intermission. Door open 30 minutes before showtime, general seating. All proceeds of this Event benefit "Stars of the World" a program designed to support Dance Education for extraordinarily gifted Young Dancers.
