Don Quixote can rightfully be called one of the most popular performances in the Royal Moscow Ballet’s repertoire. Perfectly synchronized, smooth and precise, there is a special charm to the performance that draws the viewer into the story. Here is the temperament, the emotion and the fascination of Old Spain wrapped up in a classic story of adventure, misadventure and love.
The ballet of Don Quixote is told in four acts and eight scenes, based on episodes taken from the famous novel Don Quixote de la Mancha by Miguel de Cervantes. This beautiful story was originally choreographed by Marius Petipa to the music of Ludwig Minkus. Don Quixote was first presented by the Ballet of the Imperial Bolshoi Theater of Moscow, Russia on December 26th,1869. All modern productions of the Petipa/Minkus ballet are derived from the version staged by Alexander Gorsky for the Bolshoi Theater of Moscow in 1900; a production the ballet master staged for the Imperial Ballet of St. Petersburg in 1902.
