Don Quijote , based on the novel of the immortal Miguel de Cervantes , choreography and libretto by Marius Petipa and music by Ludwig Minkus, was released on December 14, 1869 at the Imperial Bolshoi Theatre of Moscow .
Ludwig Minkus, of Austrian origin, had composed music for the ballet Paquita, premiered in Paris in 1846. Upon moving to Russia in 1869, he began his collaboration with choreographer Marius Petipa. The first year of work set out the ballet Don Quixot , which was released that same year at the Bolshoi Theatre and later restored to St. Petersburg. The music for ballets performed Minkus was adapted to the requirements of the choreographers who commissioned the work; were generally very rhythmic parts, easy to understand and very melodic themes.

The Hotel Monte Conquero offers one more chapter of the secret corners of Huelva. The Legacy English, represented here by the Quay Red, an interesting industrial development of the nineteenth century.
The purchase, in the late nineteenth century mining of the Rio Tinto by the British company Rio Tinto Company Limited and the needs of this by the transformation and transport of mineral, Huelva converted to an eminently fishing village into an industrial city.
Among the many traces left this symbiosis, the English in Huelva , one of the most characteristic but not the only, was the so-called Dock Tinto .
The Dock is really about the Odiel river and not on Tinto, built between 1874 and 1876 to download at the port of Huelva the extracted ore Mine Rio Tinto to the north of the province of Huelva is located in the southwestern corner of the city, about 3 kms from our Hotel Monte Conquero , south dock lift, with a total length of 1,165 meters partly on the Odiel river and partly on land. It is the endpoint of the path of the railway from the mines transported the ore to the city. It was built on filled in the marsh, by the mining company near the estuary of Goals land and on the Odiel river by English engineers Sir George Barclay Bruce and Thomas Gibson.
It remained in service until 1975, when from May ships began using a new facility in the nearby port of Huelva estimated that during the years of operation embarked from him more than 150 million tons of ore. A few years later was divided into two so that he could pass a road parallel to the river. Over the next five years it was abandoned so its deterioration was obvious throughout those years.
The restoration was undertaken in 2006, in two tranches, by both the City Council and the Ministry of Development of Spain and ended in its first phase in February 2007 with an investment of 14 million euros. That rehabilitation would be complete when the boardwalk in the dock area (by the Port Authority) and reconstruction of the segment that was dismantled for the construction of the road, which would permanently close the traffic in the area to be conditioned.
A look at the estuary and ocean beyond from this bastion of nineteenth-century industrialization is a sight worth an afternoon stroll cleared of Huelva.
