Don Quixote - National Ballet of Cuba
A magnificent Don Quixote by the National Ballet of Cuba at the Grand Palais in Paris
Founded by "prima ballerina assoluta" Alicia Alonso over fifty years ago, the National Ballet of Cuba -- one of the world's best companies -- gives an insight into its extraordinary talent with Don Quixote.
This joyous, sparkling work is perfectly suited to the company's mix of classicism and panache -- a style that combines Russian technique and American rapidity with a thoroughly Latin sensibility.
Performed in the original Alicia Alonso version, Don Quixote devotes all of its two hours to authentic Spanish dance: sensational portés, vertiginous leaps, splendid pirouettes, sublime solos and stunning variations.
Viengsay Valdés (Kitri) and Romel Frómeta (Basilio) are an absolute delight: technical prowess, powerful stage presence and a flair that permeates every step, every movement.
