Don Quixote – a Wonderfully Entertaining Ballet
Music by Ludwig Minkus
Featuring live Orchestra with over 30 musicians
‘Always top-quality shows from this producer’ Stage Talk Magazine
After sell-out performances last year, the Russian State Ballet and Opera House is back for its annual UK tour with spellbinding, lavish, full-production touring ballet.
Don Quixote delights in stories of brave knights, fabulous giants and other fantastical creatures.
But most of all, he dreams of his beloved Dulcinea, a woman that he believes to be so lovely and noble that she must be divine. His dreams are of their romantic adventures.
As he approaches the windmills, he can no longer see the moon and thinks that evil magicians have hidden his beloved mistress. So, spear in hand, he tilts at the sails of the windmill, which he mistakes for a giant!
Don Quixote has all the elements of the great classical ballets: emotion, drama and unforgettable characters.
Love, duels and spectacular choreography are mixed with a dash of Spanish passion in this most beautiful and moving ballet.
Fantastic evening out full of joy.
