Biographical/historical: The Spanish-born dancer Donato is said to have lost his leg in an accident in a bull-ring. Despite his disability he achieved artistic and financial success as a dancer in various European countries, culminating his career at London's Covent Garden theatre in the winter of 1864-1865. He won praise not only for his execution of virtuosic ballet steps, but for his expertise in manipulating a cape and playing castanets, skills he may have owed to his Spanish heritage. He died of consumption on June 10, 1865.
