LOURDES LOPEZ / ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

Don Quixote stands the test of time!

Our 2013-2014 Season has completely flown by! The Company is now preparing for its final program of the season — the full-length production of Don Quixote. This ballet dates back to 1869, when choreographer Marius Petipa created it for the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow. Having danced in Spain himself, Petipa’s choreography reflects the local culture by¬†incorporating the Spanish dance idiom into the movements and bringing Cervantes’ sensual gypsies and macho bullfighters to life onstage.

Since its origination, Don Quixote has been delighting audiences all over the world. The irresistible Minkus score and lavish costumes and sets make this ballet an all-time, crowd favorite and a celebratory closing to a successful 2013-2014 Season. Get a sneak peek of the performance in the video below!

Let us know if you have seen Don Quixote before! Why do YOU think this ballet has stood the test of time?

    ire a ver el quijote por MCB… me gusta mucho, la musica es bella/ su pdd final es unico… lo he visto dos veces por el ballet nacional de cuba en actuaciones aqui en USA… por ellos es fabuloso, sobre todo la manera en que resaltan el sabor espanol… sus bailarinas en el PDD, sobre todo la coda es asombrosa…espero que el MCB tambien este a esa altura..
