August 25, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
A special run of Don Quixote performed by the Ballet Nacional de Cuba is coming to the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) towards the end of next month, as part of the Brisbane Festival celebrations.

Having been performed to audiences around the world, the company's take on the classic fictional tale has received widespread critical acclaim.

In particular, their interpretation of the story has been praised for the dignified and serious manner in which the title character is portrayed - an aspect of the story which is often minimised in modern remakes.

Tourists staying at one of the cheap hotels Brisbane has available between September 24th and October 3rd 2010 will have the opportunity to catch the three-act classic, which runs for two hours and 15 minutes including two 20-minute intervals.

Tickets for the performance cost between A$44 and A$154, although discounts are available on bookings for groups of ten or more.

Don Quixote is one of many theatre shows being staged throughout the festival period which 5 star hotels Brisbane customers will have the opportunity to enjoy.
