Dancer on Spotlight for BP’s Don Quixote: Victor Maguad


I have known one of Ballet Philippines’ soloists, Victor Maguad for almost three years now.  Got nothing but praises for this young dancer who always puts in his 200% best in every performance onstage. 

He has appeared in all of BP’s major and minor productions which include notables, Swan Lake, The Nutcraker, Peter Pan, Exemplar, A Gala Celebration, Dance MNL, Crisostomo Ibarra to name a few. 

As the season closer for Ballet Philippines’ 48th Season, the re-staging of Don Quixote by Adam Sage is not an easy thing to do. Don Q may be fun and colorful onstage but deep inside, its choreography is one of the best there is which requires a lot of intricate and fancy footworks and leaps and lifts and strong techniques from its lead, Basilio.

The three exciting Basilio’s were portrayed by international guest danseur Joseph Gatti (for two Gala Shows only) and alternating are Victor Maguad and Ian Ocampo in certain performances.
