[ROH] DON QUIXOTE (165 NR)
LIVE ballet on the BIG screen – June 27 at 6:30 pm and June 29 at 1:30 pm
Love and friendship triumph in Royal Ballet’s production of Carlos Acosta’s dazzling ballet. Cervantes’s story of the bumbling knight Don Quixote has inspired countless artistic interpretations. Marius Petipa choreographed this sparkling ballet about the encounters of the man from La Mancha and his faithful squire Sancho Panza. The story follows Don Quixote’s picaresque journey to do deeds in honour of his imaginary noble lady, Dulcinea.
Sunny, charming, funny and touching – Don Quixote is a ballet as full of uplifting emotion as it is of astonishing ballet technique. The production was filmed from the Royal Opera House in London’s Covent Garden.
