Dance Prism presents Don Quixote
April 28, 2013
Dance Prism will present a new setting of the buoyant classical ballet Don Quixote for one performance only, at the Collins Center in Andover on April 28 at 2:30 pm. Based on a ballet originally produced in St. Petersburg in 1871, it explores the mis-adventures of the legendary Don, his comic servant Sancho Panza, and the spirited pair of young lovers with whom they disrupt the colorful city of Barcelona.
A lively cast of gypsies, toreadors, and Spanish dancers surround Cervantes' idealistic Don, played by dancer and artist David Workman. The lovers will be danced by Columbia City Ballet soloist Miranda Bailey, who is co- staging the production with Dance Prism's Artistic Director Mary Demaso, and Florida-based John-Michael Takashima, also formerly of Columbia City Ballet. Matt Tucker will play the toreador Espada, and Michelle Michitson will tease him endlessly in the role of the street dancer Mercedes.
