Gorgeous, dramatic, and fun! NBT concludes its season with this high-soaring masterpiece based on the famous novel by Miguel de Cervantes. The ballet was originally choreographed by Marius Petipa with music by Ludwig Minkus and was performed for the first time in 1869 in Moscow. As the ballet begins, an aging nobleman named Don Quixote becomes obsessed with stories of ancient rivalry. Appearing a little silly, he uses his imagination and pretends to be a brave knight. He imagines that he sets out to rescue the lady of his dreams, named Dulcinea. He transforms his servant, Sancho Panza, into a trusty squire, and off they go. Don Quixote leads a charge against imaginary enemies, which he sees everywhere. He proceeds to fight invisible rivals, puppets, and windmills. The ballet’s highlight is a wonderful wedding pas de deux performed by Kitri and Basilio. These roles have been regarded as the most challenging of any classical ballet.
