Don Quixote

Don Quixote



Screened as part of the 2015 & 2016 Fugard Bioscope World Arts Season. From the Bolshoi Ballet.

Cervantes' eccentric hero Don Quixote leaves on journey full of adventures with his loyal squire Sancho Panza in search of his perfect woman. On the way he meets Kitri, the dazzling daughter of an innkeeper who he thinks might be his ideal love.

The Bolshoi's panache and excellence are combined in Fadeyechev's critically acclaimed staging of this exalting performance with Leon Minkus' famous score. Featuring brand new sets and costumes to accompany this colourful and technically challenging production, Don Quixote is quintessential Bolshoi, abounding with life and not to be missed!
