Bolshoi Ballet Live in HD: Don Quixote
Don Quixote is one of the most charming and amusing of all 19th century romantic Russian ballets. It tells the famous tale of the obsessive, romantic, shortsighted and eccentric elderly man determined to revive chivalry on an adventurous quest. All sorts of hilarious scrapes ensue when his high-minded idealism confronts humdrum reality.
Originally choreographed by Marius Petipa to the music of Ludwig Minkus, Don Quixote was first presented by the Ballet of the Imperial Bolshoi Theatre of Moscow in 1869. Over the years, Don Quixote has been modified, restaged and has become a staple of the Bolshoi repertoire.
