The Bolshoi Ballet presents their delightful staging of Cervantes’ timeless story. Eccentric hero Don Quixote has filled his head with stories about knights and chivalry. He’s accompanied by his loyal squire Sancho Panza on a journey to make his name and also to discover his perfect woman. On their adventures, Don Quixote runs across the beautiful Kitri, an innkeeper’s daughter, and becomes convinced that she is the woman he has been searching for.
Don Quixote is one of the most famous and influential stories in all of literature. Alexei Fadeyechev’s dazzling staging brings fresh life to this timeless tale, with Leon Minkus’ thrilling score working in conjunction with Sergei Barkhin’s imaginative sets and costumes based on 1903 sketches by Vasily Diyachkov. This colourful and technically challenging production is quintessentially Bolshoi, abounding with life and is an unmissable treat for all fans of the ballet.
