Singapore Dance Theatre (SDT) will open its’ 2019 season with Don Quixote from 7 – 10 March 2019, at the Esplanade Theatre. Selected by Dance Europe Critic’s Choice as one of the Best Premieres of the year, SDT’s company premiere of Don Quixote garnered rave reviews and fronted Dance Europe’s cover in January 2015.
Set in Spain, Don Quixote tells a story of love, betrayal, and eternal devotion written by Miguel de Cervantes. Kitri, the beautiful daughter of Lorenzo the innkeeper, has fallen in love with Basilio, a poor young barber. However, Kitri’s father has every intention on having her marry the wealthy fop, Gamache. The two young lovers resolve to run away, and met Don Quixote, an old knight, and his faithful companion, Sancho Panza, en route to escape. With a series of chivalrous acts, whimsical twists, and proof that love conquers all, Kitri and Basilio finally celebrate their marriage with a grand pas de deux, a glittering showstopper displaying the dazzling feats of partnering.
