DON QUIXOTE TOUR (article first published : 2002-06-9)

Following highly successful Russian ballet tours of South Africa in recent years, Edouard Miasnikov is proud to present the Russian National Ballet on a five-city return visit to South Africa between July 13 and 26 this year.

Under the artistic directorship of Serguei Radtchenko, with lead dancers Marina Rjanikova and Mikhail Bessmertnov heading a stellar cast, the company will perform the classic three-act ballet Don Quixote.

Based on Miguel Cervantes' novel of the same title and set to a melodic musical score by Ludwig Minkus, Marius Petipa's celebrated ballet has been described as the ultimate showcase of the famous Moscow school of Russian dance. The ballet offers a magnificent spectacle of colour, passion and virtuoso dancing, performed against evocative settings that conjure the essence of romantic Spain.

Early booking is strongly advised to avoid last minute disappointment. Don Quixote can be seen at The Playhouse Opera, Durban, on July 25 and 26 at 20h00.

Other performances take place at Artscape Opera House, Cape Town (July 13 to 14); Civic Theatre Johannesburg (July 16 to 19); Spoornet State Theatre Pretoria (July 20 and 21), and the Sand du Plessis Theatre, Bloemfontein (July 23).

Book now to avoid disappointment. Ticket prices from R158 to R218. Book at Computicket or call 083 915-8000, www.computicket.com and Playhouse Dial A Seat 031 369-9444.
