Don Quixote,” a ballet that originated in 1869 at the Imperial Bolshoi Theatre, is based on Cervantes’ eccentric hero’s journey in search of his perfect woman. This ballet, famous for its bravura dancing and spectacular technical feats, is choreographed by Marius Petipa and Alexander Gorsky to a score by Ludwig Minkus. Highlighting dazzling new costumes re-created from historic sketches, Don Quixote is quintessential Bolshoi, teeming with life and set to a cadence of castanets and tambourines.
