I have noticed that the ballerina who plays Kitri always has very dark hair. This is probably because it is a Spanish ballet, but I just love the role of Kitri and because I have blonde hair would I not be chosn to be her [in a company]? (if I were a principal of course!)

Ever heard of wigs, balletstar? ;) But all Spaniards do not have dark hair. There actually are blonds there too :)

I have seen blonde Kitris (Letestu, and Dupont who isn't blonde but doesn't have very dark hair...) before so why not?

I suppose I would say it depends on what sort of red, but probably why not?

I've seen people of different ethnicities other than Hispanic (or people who look like they could pass for being Spanish) dance the role. Last year, Lauren Anderson was featured in it and in the new issue of Pointe it has photos of Yuan Yuan Tan performing in Don Q.
