Eat your heart out, Elizabeth Taylor.

The legendary actress may have introduced audiences to Cleopatra, the iconic Egyptian queen, in the classic 1963 film, but a Winnipeg dance company is set to resurrect her legend with a production at the upcoming 2013 Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival.

Bolero Dance Theatre, in collaboration with Amar Egyptian Dance, will present Cleopatra, which fuses Spanish dance and flamenco with Egyptian dance and will transport audiences back to ancient Rome and Egypt, organizers say.

Based on the life and loves of Egypt’s last queen, the show will feature guest dancer Beatriz Barcelo, from Spain, in the lead role. Local choreographers Pedro Aurelio (Spanish dance) and Nicola Tresoor (Egyptian dance) will fuse their styles of dance and music, while 20 dancers are set to perform to live musical accompaniment, including guitar, violin, piano, harp and darbuka drums.

Seven 75-minute shows will run from July 19 to 21 and 25 to 28 in Pauline-Boutal Hall at Centre culturel franco-manitobain (340 Provencher Blvd.). Tickets are $10 and $8 for discounted groups, such as students, seniors and kids aged 12 and under, note organizers.
