When to see it
These events are part of the Summer 2019 season.
The Bolshoi Ballet’s production of Marius Petipa’s Don Quixote, brilliantly staged by Alexei Fadeyechev, brings together breathtaking displays of virtuoso dancing and enchanting choreography. It perfectly conveys the excitement, colour and wit of Cervantes’s masterful novel in a merry, high-spirited account of the love between Kitri and Basil. The lovers must overcome all Kitri’s father’s attempts to engineer his unwilling daughter into a more lucrative match – and, with the help of Don Quixote, they win the day.
