Don Quixote
Based on Miguel de Cervantes’ mock-chivalric romance about a crazy old man who believes himself to be a heroic knight-errant, and offering a flamboyant fiesta of vibrant Spanish color and classical Russian dance, Don Quixote was originally created by the master choreographer Marius Petipa, together with the composer Ludwig Minkus, for the Imperial Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow in 1869. Almost a century later, in 1966, five years after fleeing to the West, the legendary Russian dancer Rudolf Nureyev created a new version for the Vienna State Ballet.
