Don Quixote

Composer: Ludwig Minkus
Choreographers: Alexander Gorsky after Marius Petipa
Staging and additional Choreography: Helgi Tomasson and Yuri Possokhov


With sparkling wit, exuberant characters, and show-stopping dancing, Don Quixote is the stylish rom-com of classical ballet—and an audience favorite. Helgi Tomasson and Yuri Possokhov’s Don Quixote, with set and costumes designed by Tony Award winner Martin Pakledinaz, features a lively cast of characters from Miguel de Cervantes’ novel—and some of ballet’s most technically demanding dances.
