Full of Spanish flavor and vitality, Don Quixote will close the 2004/2005 Season, which assembles many of the ballet works choreographed by Petipa.
Based on the celebrated novel by Cervantes, Don Quixote is a romantic comedy of two young lovers, Kitri and Basilio, whom Don Quixote, a gentleman devoted to the idea of chivalry, meets during his journey. The dances that appear on stage require a high level of technical skill and incorporate abundant elements of Spanish folk dance that Petipa is said to have loved all his life, making the work really worth seeing.
