Don Quichot – an audience favorite of prestigious companies worldwide – is a dazzling display of high spirits, virtuosity, and Spanish temperament. The flamboyant leaps, dizzying pirouettes and crisp pointe work that are standard features of the production give the performers every opportunity to show off their technical prowess. But at the same time, the comic story based on Cervantes’ masterpiece makes strong demands on the dancers’ acting abilities.

Director and award-winning choreographer Ted Brandsen has taken the turbulent life of the Dutch dancer and spy Mata Hari as his inspiration for a lavish new full-length ballet. A new score has been specially commissioned from GRAMMY® nominated composer Tarik O‘Regan.
Choreography by Charles Jude after Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot Libretto by Théophile Gautier and Jules-Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges after Heinrich Heine. The ballet tells the story of a lovely peasant girl named Giselle who has a passion for dancing, and when she finds out the man she loves is engaged to someone else she dies of a broken heart.
Coppelia is the most classic of the French Ballets. Created in 1870 at the Opera de Paris, it fed on the evolution of the society and on the choregrapher's imagination. Here is a "sparkling" version modernized and pacey. The action takes place in the America of Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly and Jérôme Robbins. Style and spirit of the musicals of Broadway, Hollywood fantasy... and 40 dancers!
