The Royal Ballet live from The Royal Opera House

Choreography Carlos Acosta after Marius Petipa

Music Ludwig Minkus arranged and orchestrated by Martin Yates

Marius Petipa choreographed this sparkling ballet about the encounters of the bumbling knight Don Quixote and his faithful squire Sancho Panza.  At its heart are virtuoso roles for the lovers Basilio and Kitri.  Carlos Acosta’s vibrant staging brings together the whole Company in such roles as exuberant villagers, passionate gypsies and even fantasy flowers.  Don Quixote’s picaresque journey to do deeds in honour of his imaginary noble lady, Dulcinea is sunny, charming, funny and touching – Don Quixote is a ballet as full of uplifting emotion as it is of astonishing ballet technique.

Approximate running time: 2 hours 40 minutes, including one interval
