Don Quixote - Mariinsky Ballet
Royal Opera House
The Royal Ballet will perform a dance adaptation of the classic novel by Miguel de Cervantes Don Quixote at Royal Opera House in London.
Carlos Acosta presents his first work for The Royal Ballet – a dance adaptation of the classic novel by Miguel de Cervantes. Acosta has already established himself as an exciting choreographic talent with Tocororo – A Cuban Tale, a semi-autobiographical work that draws on his childhood in Cuba and broke box office records at Sadler’s Wells Theatre in 2003.
The adventures of the bumbling knight Don Quixote and his ever-faithful squire Sancho Panza have been the inspiration for countless ballets, of which one of the most well-loved is the version by 19th-century Russian choreographer Marius Petipa.
