MULTIPLEX cinemas in several Slovak cities and towns will show live broadcasts from prominent world opera and ballet houses, like the Royal Opera House in London, the Teatro Real in Madrid and the Dutch National Ballet in Amsterdam.

The third broadcast to be shown in this series – after the ballet Swan Lake and the opera Turandot – will be the ballet Don Quixote, performed to the music of Ludwig Minkus, originally choreographed by Marius Petipa and adapted by Martin Yates (who also conducts the orchestra). Carlos Acosta, who danced the role of Basilio many times for the Royal Opera House, has produced, choreographed and directed this recent performance. The adventure of the strange knight, authored by Miguel de Cervantes, has inspired numerous ballets, but this one is the best known.

The Cinemax network will broadcast the Royal Opera House’s performance on October 16, in its theatres in Banská Bystrica, Košice, Nitra and Žilina, the TASR newswire wrote.
