Manassas Ballet dancers rehearse a scene from “Don Quixote.” 

The Manassas Ballet isn’t letting the pandemic get in the way of their fall performance season. The local troupe is performing at their regular venue, the Hylton Performing Arts Center, and bringing the show to their fans via at-home streaming. 

“Don Quixote,” streaming from Saturday, Oct. 17 to Nov. 16, is a sensational and spicy classical ballet set in Barcelona that incorporates all the great elements: longing, love, loss and, in the end, a wedding. Dancing the principal roles are Joshua Burnham and Kaitlin Frankenfield as “Basilio” and “Kitri,” and Alice DeNardi and Ahmed Nabil as “Mercedes” and “Espada.” The program also features bonus scenes with Masaya Kaneko and Julianne Russell as “Basilio” and “Kitri,” and Debora Greer and Shady Mohamed as “Mercedes” and “Espada.”
