Set in the bustling Spanish port of Barcelona, Don Quixote tells the story of beautiful, audacious Kitri and her love for the dashing but poor Basilio. Her father, however, has more ambitious plans for his headstrong daughter, hoping to marry her off to a wealthy suitor. In the end, love conquers all.

Commenting on the visit by Marianela Nunez and Vadim Muntagirov, Joburg Ballet CEO Esther Nasser said: “Joburg Ballet is thrilled to have engaged Ms Nunez and Mr. Muntagirov for Don Quixote. They were scheduled to appear with the company in March 2020 but the pandemic intervened. Now, three-and-a-half years later, South African audiences have the opportunity to watch one of ballet’s most acclaimed partnerships on the stage of the Joburg Theatre. Our grateful thanks go to The Michel Tesson Trust and Friends of the Ballet for the generous support which has helped make the season of Don Quixote possible.”

Italy-based SA ballet producer Angela Malan, who will stage Don Quixote for Joburg Ballet, said: “Few ballets equal Don Quixote in capturing classical ballet at its most exuberant and dazzling and I am looking forward to working with Joburg Ballet in bringing this scintillating classic to life. It is the perfect ballet to introduce Marianela Nunez and Vadim Muntagirov to Johannesburg audiences as well as to showcase Joburg Ballet’s own wonderful dancers.”

Joburg Ballet is delighted that dancers from WGRUV Dance Company will augment Joburg Ballet for Don Quixote. Sharing the stage with WGRUV Dance Company aligns with Joburg Ballet’s ongoing endeavours to forge closer ties between the ballet company and the broader dance community.
