Classical, colorful ballet Don Quixote is back at the Royal Opera

The shrewd nobleman Don Quixote is dreaming of living his life like the gallant knights he reads about in medieval romances. He embarks on a journey to fulfil his dream of fighting all evil in the world together with his sidekick Sancho Panza. They encounter Kitri and Basilio, two lovers who wish for the blessing of Kitri’s father. It is Don Quixote’s chivalric duty to come to their aid…

The masterpiece Don Quixote is a colourful tragicomic adventure for the whole family ¬– a classical ballet informed by Cervantes’ creative mind. This delightful, technically outstanding ballet was created by the legendary choreographer Rudolf Nureyev.
