Kingfisher Airlines, in association with APTDC, Travel Masters India Pvt. Ltd., The Indian Council For Cultural Relations, Dr. Reddy's Labs and Shankarananda Kalakshetra, is presenting the world-famous Navoi Bolshoi Ballet from the erstwhile Soviet city of Tashkent, Uzbekistan, for their first ever performance in the city of Hyderabad, on 14th January.

Presented by the Navoi Bolshoi Ballet from Tashkent, this grand and opulently mounted production will consist of about 110 artists, including ballerinas and live musicians. The characters of Miguel de Cervantes' Don Quixote are being brought to Hyderabad after having taken Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai by storm. The troupe of 110 will consist of about 50-ballet dancers and a 50-member philharmonic orchestra, along with support staff.

The excitement, colour and wit of Cervantes' masterpiece are conveyed in this sparkling production of Don Quixote, set to the vibrant musical score of Ludwig Minkus. In astounding displays of virtuoso dancing, the plot unfolds merrily, as the love between Kitri and Basil is challenged by the fruitless attempts of Kitri's father to engineer his unwilling daughter into a more lucrative match. Drama, comedy, love and dazzling choreography combine in this enchanting classic.

The Navoi Opera And Ballet Grand Academic Theatre in Tashkent, named after the famous poet and philosopher Alisher Navoi, is one of the leading centres of performing arts in Central Asia, frequented by several famous conductors, musicians and artistes. It is one of the 3 theatres, out of more than 700, that were given the status of Bolshoi (big) in the erstwhile Soviet Union. The Company has graced the stages of La Scala, Milan, the Paris Opera, Covent Garden, the Metropolitan and the Bolshoi and Mariynski Theatres.

Its wide repertoire, which is growing steadily, ranges from classical favourites such as Swan Lake and Don Quixote, to original creations inspired by ancient Uzbek folk tales. Its performances are rated as among the best in the world.

Entry is by invitation only. Please contact Deepti at 98497-58020 for further details.

It was the first time a famous ballet group was in Hyderabad - so it was really a great experience for all western classical music enthusiasts. Hope that we get a lot more programs like these in Hyderabad. Kudos to Shankarananda Kalakshetra and APTDC! - Padmaprabodh.

Pros: Performance by artists - the ballet dances and the music
Cons: The excerpts were too fast
