Don op­ti­mistic

The Peak (Hong Kong) - - Art & Design -

In an era ob­sessed with fake news, it seems op­por­tune to re­visit Don Quixote, Miguel de Cer­vantes’ tragi-comedic story of a Span­ish hi­dalgo who seems in­ca­pable of see­ing re­al­ity. Based on orig­i­nal chore­og­ra­phy by Mar­ius Petipa and Alexan­der Gorsky, with ad­di­tional con­tri­bu­tion by Nina Ana­ni­ashvili, the Hong Kong Bal­let’s re-telling of the tale fea­tures guest bal­le­rina Iana Salenko in the main role, along­side a cast se­lected by new artis­tic di­rec­tor Sep­time We­bre, promis­ing plenty of ex­u­ber­ant jetés, pirou­ettes and lifts.
