Don Quixote (Royal Opera House)

LOVE AND  FRIENDSHIP  TRIUMPH  IN  CARLOS  ACOSTA’S  VIBRANT  PRODUCTION  OF  THIS  DAZZLING  BALLET.

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 Acosta chose  this  joyful  classic  for  his  first  production  for  The  Royal  Ballet.  His  vibrant  staging  brings  together  the  whole  Company  in  such  roles  as  exuberant  villagers,  passionate  gypsies  and  even  fantasy  flowers.  The story follows Don Quixote’s picaresque journey 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.
