Production and Additional Choreography by ALEXEI RATMANSKY

Décor & Costume Design by JÉRÔME KAPLAN

Don Quichot – an audience favourite of prestigious companies worldwide – is a dazzling display of high spirits, virtuosity and Spanish temperament. The fl amboyant leaps, dizzying pirouettes and crisp pointe work that are standard features of the production give the performers every opportunity to show off their technical prowess.

But at the same time, the comic story based on Cervantes’ masterpiece makes strong demands on the dancers’ acting abilities. The leading Russian choreographer Alexei Ratmansky has drawn inspiration for his production from the libretto of the first version of Don Quichot by Marius Petipa, created in 1869. The former artistic director of the Bolshoi Ballet and Artist in Residence of the American Ballet Theatre now has also added his own new elements and choreography to the ballet.

The modern designs for the ballet, by the renowned French designer Jérôme Kaplan, refer to the times of Cervantes.

SPECIAL FEATURES: Behind the Scenes. Filmed by a dancer using a bodycam on stage during a rehearsal of Act One of the ballet. Interviews with the actors and principal dancers.
