St. Augustine Ballet Performances
The St. Augustine Ballet presents two Performances of Peter & the Wolf and Don Quixote Suite on Saturday, May 21, 2022 in Lewis Auditorium at Flagler College.
Performance Times: 1:30pm and 7:00pm
Act 1 features Peter and the Wolf, a “symphonic fairy tale” by composer Sergei Prokofiev. The ballet features a narrator and a young boy named Peter who lives with his grandfather in a small country house surrounded by meadows, a pond and the woods. Peter’s three best friends are a little bird who has a nest near Peter’s home, a duck who likes to splash in the nearby pond at the edge of the woods, and a playful cat who is forever chasing his own tail! This is the perfect ballet for all ages.
Act 2 features the Don Quixote Suite: The Dream, a ballet based on episodes taken from the famous novel Don Quixote de la Mancha by Miguel de Cervantes. In the Dream sequence, Don Quixote has an enchanted dream about beautiful maidens in which the image of Kitri symbolizes his Dulcinea.
Local dance students from St. Johns, Duval and Flagler counties are featured in the performance, under the direction of Luis Abella. Abella is the Executive and Artistic Director of Saint Augustine Ballet. Special guest Daniel Hilbert, an attorney with Canan Law in St. Augustine, is the narrator.
