Epic Masterpiece of Chivalry, and Comedy
Tickets: $45, $40, $25 | Children 12 and under, $10 any seat
The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded in Moscow in the late 1980s. This vibrant company is dedicated not only to the timeless tradition of classical Russian ballet but to invigorate tradition with developments from around the world. Based on an episode from Miguel de Cervantes’ famous novel, Don Quixote de la Mancha, the story follows its title hero, a middle-aged country gentleman absorbed with tales of chivalry, who sets out to defend virtue and punish those who violate the code of honor. With his servant Sancho Panza as his armor-bearer, he travels to Barcelona, only to mistake Kitri, an innkeeper’s daughter who is in love with a barber, for his dream-lover Dulcinea. A dance-packed feast of comedy, drama, romance, intrigue, betrayal and fantasy, Minkus’ rousing score endows each scene with rich atmosphere.
