Don Quixote

Choreography by Michael Messerer, Kasyan Goleizovsky, Marius Petipa, Alexander Gorsky  |  Music by Ludwig Minkus

An avid and passionate reader of chivalric romances, Don Quixote decides that for the sake of his own glory and the common good, he must set out in search of adventures as a knight-errant. He sets for himself an objective no lower than to "redress grievances, right wrongs and repair injustices." The ballet primarily focuses on a humorous love story taken from the novel by Cervantes: the tale of Kitri and Basilio, who – despite all adversity – live happily ever after through the intervention of Don Quixote. Don Quixote was the first of a number of jointly crafted ballets that resulted from the collaboration between Marius Petipa and Ludwig Minkus.
