The Mariinsky Ballet opens its London season with the company’s sparkling production of Petipa and Gorsky’s exuberant classic, Don Quixote.
Set in romantic Spain, the plot unfolds as the love between Kitri and Basilio is challenged by the fruitless attempts of Kitri’s father to engineer a more lucrative match for his unwilling daughter. The excitement, colour and wit of Cervantes’s masterpiece are a perfect vehicle for the brilliance of the Mariinsky dancers, whose astounding displays of dazzling choreography and virtuoso dancing are highlighted by Minkus’s irresistible music.
