ROH: Don Quixote on Sunday 24th February 2019

Royal Opera House

The Royal Ballet

Don Quixote

Ballet in a prologue and three acts

Choreography Carlos Acosta after Marius Petipa

Music Ludwig Minkus


Arranged and orchestrated by Martin Yates

Love and friendship triumph in Carlos Acosta’s vibrant production of this dazzling ballet.

Cervantes’s story of the bumbling knight
Don Quixote has inspired countless artistic interpretations. Marius Petipa choreographed this sparkling ballet about the encounters
of the man from La Mancha and his faithful squire Sancho Panza. At its heart are virtuoso roles for the lovers Basilio and Kitri.

Carlos Acosta chose this joyful classic
for his rst production for The Royal Ballet. His vibrant staging brings together the
whole Company in such roles as exuberant villagers, passionate gypsies and even fantasy owers. The story follows Don Quixote’s picaresque journey to do deeds in honour
of his imaginary noble lady, Dulcinea. Sunny, charming, funny and touching – Don Quixote is a ballet as full of uplifting emotion as it is of astonishing ballet technique.

Approximate running time:
 2 hrs 45 mins (including one interval)
