Carlos Acosta’s Royal Ballet production of Don Quixote is now available to pre-order on DVD and Blu-ray, both online and from the Royal Opera House Shop.

The production, Carlos’s first full-length choreographic work for The Royal Ballet, features dazzling performances by Marianela Nuñez and Carlos in the roles of Kitri and Basilio.

The ballet, described by Carlos as ‘fun, colourful and a tremendous spectacle’, had its world premiere at the start of this Season. Read audience reactions to the opening night.

Based on elements of the classic Spanish novel by Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote follows the adventures of a bumbling, delusional knight and his loyal squire. Carlos’s production, which features designs by Tim Hatley, lighting designs by Hugh Vanstone and music by Ludwig Minkus, is full of Spanish flair and bravura with demanding, energetic choreography.

Discover Ludwig Minkus's sun-drenched score.

The DVD features an introductory film and a cast gallery.
