14-16 February Don Quixote at the Bolshoi

Minkus’s ballet, staged in 3 acts, follows the hapless Don Quixote and his stalwart sword-bearer Sancho Panza as the Don searches for fame, glory and his true love, Dulcinea.  Mistaken identity, foolishness and bravado abound as Kitri, the heroine and Basilio, the hero and her love, abscond with Don Quixote adds mayhem and carnage as he charges full of misdirected chivalry.

A bright, cheerful, colourful and truly wonderful ballet!
