Don Quixote - Harlow Ballet Association on Thursday 18th - Sunday 21st April 2019

Don Quixote is a comical character, who after reading too many romantic novels, sets on a journey across Spain as a chivalrous knight, with his faithful, if dishonest, servant, Sancho Panza.

Searching for adventure, they arrive in a village on the day of its Annual Fiesta, where they meet Kitri and Basilio, a young couple in love. Kitri’s father, however, wants her to marry the wealthy nobleman, Gamache. Don Quixote decides to intervene…..

This exciting, vibrant ballet blends fantasy with comedy and is set amongst the windmills in the sunny Spanish countryside. The colourful costumes and beautiful music by Ludwig Minkus will delight all.

Don Quixote, originally choreographed by Marius Petipa in 1869, and recently performed by the Royal Ballet, has now been adapted and directed by Michael Branwell for the Harlow Ballet Association.

This lively and sometimes comical ballet, which contains one of the most beautiful “white acts” in the whole ballet repertoire, will be loved by all ages.

18th & 19th April - 7.30pm
