CHOREOGRAPHY: CARLOS ACOSTA, AFTER: MARIUS PETIPA, MUSIC: LUDWIG MINKUS, ARRANGED AND ORCHESTRATED BY MARTIN YATES.

Cervantes’s story of the bumbling knight Don Quixote has inspired countless artistic interpretations. Marius Petipa choreographed this sparkling ballet about the encounters of the man from La Mancha and his faithful squire Sancho Panza. At its heart are virtuoso roles for the lovers Basilio and Kitri. Carlos roles as exuberant villagers, passionate gypsies and even fantasy flowers. The story follows Don Quixote’s picaresque journey Acosta chose this joyful classic for his first production for The Royal Ballet. His vibrant staging brings together the whole Company in such to do deeds in honour of his imaginary noble lady, Dulcinea. Sunny, charming, funny and touching – Don Quixote is a ballet as full of uplifting emotion as it is of astonishing ballet technique.

LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP TRIUMPH IN CARLOS ACOSTA’S VIBRANT PRODUCTION OF THIS DAZZLING BALLET.
APPROXIMATE RUNNING TIME: 2 HOURS 45 MINUTES, INCLUDING ONE INTERVAL
