About the performance

Don Quixote is a special performance for Moscow. It is the only great classical ballet that was not transferred from Paris or St Petersburg but originated here. It has experienced numerous transformations and as a result, nowadays there is not much left from the original conception of Marius Petipa and the famous revolutionary production by Alexander Gorsky. However, the gushing joy, bold wrecking of canons, impulsive temperament and the other-worldly complexity of the technique made it the model of the “Moscow” style in ballet.

Premiered on February 2, 2016.

Libretto by Marius Petipa after the novel of the same name by Miguel de Cervantes

Choreography by Marius Petipa and Alexander Gorsky

Use is made in the production of choreography by Rostislav Zakharov (Dance with Guitars and Jig to music by V. Soloviev-Sedoy), by Kasiyan Goleizovsky (Gipsy Dance to music by V. Zhelobinsky), by Anatoly Simachev (Fandango to music by E. Napravnik)
