Don Quixote – Imperial Russian Ballet

Don Quixote, a retired gentleman travels the roads of Spain searching for glory and grand adventure.  Accompanying him is a somewhat bewildered labourer named Sancho Panza who he has persuaded to accompany him as his faithful squire.  In return, Don Quixote promises to make Sancho the wealthy governor of an Island.  Don Quixote gives up food, shelter and comfort all in the name of a peasant woman Dulcinea del Toboso who he envisions as a princess.

The Imperial Russian Ballet Company will bring this flamboyant and festive ballet to Australia & New Zealand in 2014.

“This fun-filled show will capture and delight patrons with its risqué and hilarious adaptation of the original.”

The show was created by veteran theatre/television director Elissa Meyer Thomas and originally produced by Event Theatre Australia.
