The toreadors’ capes, the guitars’ strumming, the tambourines’ tapping, coquettish peeks from behind open fans… The enchanting Spanish flavor of Don Quixote leaps onto the Vail Theatre of the Arts stage.
Follow Kitri, the most lovely and spirited maiden of Barcelona, as she navigates the road to her true love amidst her father’s ill-conceived attempts at matchmaking. With the legendary character of Don Quixote always nearby, a seeker of justice and honor, he lends his chivalrous hand to help her find her way!
One of the most festive of the 19th Century traditional classic ballets, the brilliant Don Quixote, composed by Ludwig Minkus, is not a stage version of the famous novel by Miguel de Cervantes, but an original choreographic work originally choreographed by Marius Petipa and loosely based on de Cervantes’ novel.
Come, join us, and be a part of the fanfare!
