Plot Synopsis:

World-renowned dancer Rudolf Nureyev co-directed, starred in and restaged this version of Marius Petipa's comic ballet.
The light-hearted story, which is only loosely based on Cervantes' classic, concerns Basilio and Kitri, two young lovers who long to wed. Her father, however, is opposed to the match -- he would rather she marry the wealthy Gamache. But the clever Basilio, assisted by his friends Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, devises a sneaky plan to make sure he gets his bride.


Production Notes:

  • Rudolf Nureyev originally staged this production of "Don Quixote" for the Australian Ballet in 1970. It was based on the 1869 ballet by Franco-Russian choreographer Marius Petipa; Petipa also created "Swan Lake" (with Lev Ivanov), "The Sleeping Beauty", "The Nutcracker", "La Bayadere" and "Le Corsaire".
