ROH: Don Quixote

12A

Last shown on 19 February 2019

Cervantes ’s story of the bumbling knight Don Quixote has inspired countless artistic interpretations. Marius Petipa choreographed this sparkling ballet about the encounters of the man from La Mancha and his faithful squire Sancho  Panza. At its heart are virtuoso roles for the lovers Basilio and Kitri. Carlos Acosta chose this joyful classic for his first production for The  Royal  Ballet.  His vibrant staging brings together the whole Company in such roles as exuberant villagers, passionate gipsies and even fantasy flowers.  The story follows Don Quixote ’s picaresque journey to do deeds in honour of his imaginary noble lady,  Dulcinea.  Sunny, charming, funny and touching – Don Quixote is a ballet as full of uplifting emotion as it is of astonishing ballet technique.
