ORGANISED BY


“Knowledge and culture are the cornerstones of civilisation, progress and nation-building” – His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan The 15th Abu Dhabi Festival joins the nation in celebrating 100 years since the birth of the founding father. The ‘Year of Zayed’ honours a beloved leader and celebrates his spirit, living on in us as an appeal to the future. Sheikh Zayed built a nation by practising tolerance, hope and inclusion rather than fear and rejection and we honour his legacy by continuing this wonderful message. We are inspired to weave the elegant and intricate balance between tradition and modernity as a strong and stable foundation from which to look to the future. Sheikh Zayed believed in youth, recognising them as the true wealth of the nation. In this spirit, Abu Dhabi Festival’s youth platforms nurture the cultural voices and talent of the next generation, creating opportunities for them to contribute to the country’s future prosperity and harmony. Culture enables countries to engage in active exchange and dialogue. At the 2018 Abu Dhabi Festival, it is our privilege to highlight India as the Festival Country of Honour, celebrating its diverse cultural wealth through film, music, theatre, dance and visual arts. Welcome to the Abu Dhabi Festival 2018. Huda Alkhamis-Kanoo Founder and Artistic Director, Abu Dhabi Festival

A NEW STAGING OF A BELOVED CLASSIC

More than twenty five years had gone by since a classical full-length ballet was danced by CND. On December 16, 2015 Compañía Nacional de Danza staged for Don Quixote for the first time, choreographed by José Carlos Martínez, with music by Ludwig Minkus, sets by Raúl García Guerrero and costumes by Carmen Granell. A historical premiere that brought back academic ballet to the repertoire of the Compañía Nacional de Danza in order to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Cervantes’ second part of the famed text. "The Don Quixote ballet by Marius Petipa was, together with Swan Lake, one of the most popular ballets in Russia, where it was created in 1896 upon a musical score by Ludwig Minkus. This colourful work broke with the world of supernatural and ethereal creatures that pervaded 19th Century classical ballet, replacing them with normal village people.

The libretto is based on an episode in the second volume of Cervantes' Don Quixote (Chapter 21, "In which Camacho's wedding is continued, with other delightful incidents"). The action here centres more around Quiteria and Basilio's stormy love affair than the adventures of Don Quixote and Sancho themselves. I used as a base Marius Petipa's original choreography, together with the various versions I have had the chance to dance (Nureyev, Baryshnikov, Gorski). It seemed to me important to maintain the ballet's choreographic structure. But I also wanted to paint a more poetically nuanced Don Quixote in his quest for perfect love, embodied by Dulcinea. At the same time, I needed to draw it all into the essence of our own dance. I think it is very important for a Spanish company production of Don Quixote, even if it is a version of a FrancoRussian classic, to be respectful with our culture and tradition." JOSE CARLOS MARTÍNEZ

SYNOPSIS

Basilio loved Quiteria from his earliest years, and she responded to his passion with countless modest proofs of affection, so that the loves of the two children, Basilio and Quiteria, were the talk and the amusement of the town. As they grew up, the father of Quiteria made up his mind to refuse Basilio his wonted freedom of access to the house, and to relieve himself of constant doubts and suspicions, he arranged a match for his daughter with the rich Camacho, as he did not approve of marrying her to Basilio, who had not so large a share of the gifts of fortune as of nature; for if the truth be told ungrudgingly, he is the most agile youth we know, a mighty thrower of the bar, a first-rate wrestler, and a great ball-player; he runs like a deer, and leaps better than a goat, bowls over the nine-pins as if by magic, sings like a lark, plays the guitar

so as to make it speak, and, above all, handles a sword as well as the best. “For that excellence alone” said Don Quixote at this, “the youth deserves to marry, not merely the fair Quiteria, but Queen Guinevere herself, were she alive now, in spite of Launcelot and all who would try to prevent it.” “Say that to my wife!” said Sancho, who had until now listened in silence, “for she won't hear of anything but each one marrying his equal, holding with the proverb 'each ewe to her like'. What I would like is that this good Basilio, for I am beginning to take a fancy to him already, should marry this lady Quiteria; and a blessing and good luck, I meant to say the opposite, on people who would prevent those who love one another from marrying.” Miguel de Cervantes. Don Quijote de la Mancha, II–XIX

CND TODAY: EFFORT AND CREATIVITY Compañía Nacional de Danza (CND) has been directed by José Carlos Martínez for more than six years, proving that a quality, hybrid national company can work. During his time with CND, Martínez has demonstrated how, with effort and creativity, you can achieve great things. Management know-how has combined pieces from some of the most renowned choreographers of our times, with original creations by Spanish artists, as well as neoclassical works and other academic dance languages. The combination of the most contemporary profiles with more academic ones lies at the heart of today's CND and has been one of its most characteristic achievements since the current management took the helm in September 2011. José Carlos Martínez's concern for attracting a growing audience both through educational programmes and numerous parallel activities are the mark of a CND in the process of expansion. Proof of this lies in the growing number of performances and spectator rates, as well as national and international commitments already closed for the next few years.

CND. THE COMPANY Compañía Nacional de Danza was founded in 1979 under the name of Ballet Nacional de España Clásico with Víctor Ullate as its first Director. His successors in the post were María de Ávila and the extraordinary Russian ballerina Maya Plisétskaya. Then, in 1990, Nacho Duato was named Artistic Director of the company. Duato’s appointment brought innovative change to the company. Up to his departure in 2010, he contributed forty-five choreographic works, praised by critics worldwide. After one year under the artistic direction of Hervé Palito, the Compañía Nacional de Danza appointed its current Artistic Director, José Carlos Martínez. He took office on September 1st, 2011, after leaving his post as Principal Dancer of the Paris Opera Ballet. José Carlos Martínez's project for the Compañía Nacional de Danza is to promote dance and to make this art form better known. His repertory is wide, ranging from classical and neoclassical ballet to modern choreographic language, within a setting of full artistic and creational freedom. It embraces both new Spanish and international creations, drawing in new audiences and boosting the company's national and international projection.

2017/18: A NEW SEASON FOR FURTHER GROWTH THE SEVENTH SEASON UNDER JOSÉ CARLOS MARTÍNEZ AS CND DIRECTOR An introduction from Compañia Nacional de Danza Following six years of hard work, the CND today boasts a broad repertoire ranging from classical works to the contemporary choreographic creations of the 21st and 20th centuries. The number of national and international tours has grown considerably since 2010. That growth is in parallel to the development of our training programme, increased social participation and the search for new audiences. The 2017/2018 season sees our progress continues down that same road, with new and widely varying choreographies entering the CND’s repertoire. From maestro Kylian’s ‘Gods and Dogs’ to the French non-danse piece ‘The Show Must Go On’, by Jérôme Bell, the repertoire encompasses pieces such as ‘Hikarizatto’, by Itzik Galili, and also includes ‘Por Vos Muero’, an in-house piece from one the of the most creative periods of former CND director Nacho Duato. The company has grown this season with the help of INAEM and now hosts a cast of 50 dancers. With a view to the future, this troupe is already in the process of preparing a new classical

production of a ‘Nutcracker Suite’, to debut the following season and then tour the greatest theatres of our country. Our production of ‘Carmen’, which debuted in 2015 to win the Prix Benois de la Danse, will now tour France, South Korea and Sweden, before heading out to the West Coast of USA, a country the company has not visited for some years. As well as visiting Abu Dhabi in the company’s Arab world debut, ‘Don Quixote’ will tour Spain. Our production ‘Una Noche con Forsythe’ (‘A Night with Forsythe’) will visit France before touring at home. In our home tours, audiences can also experience works by such prestigious choreographers as Jerome Robbins, Roland Petit and Marius Petipa (whose 200th birthday we will celebrate) as well as other, emerging choreographers, demonstrating the company’s diversity and versatility. A new call for contenders to enter our creative residencies will be held. We will also be holding a range of activities (workshops, gatherings, talks, open-door events), with a view to bringing dance closer and closer to people, growing our loyalty base and audience.
