Into the town square rides the immortal Don Quixote, searching for his idea of womanhood and accompanied by his faithful sidekick, Sancho Panza. This is a vibrant, kaleidoscopic delight with ruffled skirts swirling, toreadors strutting, street dancers cavorting plus flower girls, a troop of gypsies and more in this unforgettable, fully-staged production.
With its maddeningly hummable Minkus score, Don Quixote is a never-ending stream of pleasure, climaxed by the famous Pas de Deux and punctuated by one of Petipa’s most beautiful vision scenes. It’s classical dancing at its most exquisite—and demanding. The leaps! The balances! The bravura!
