Don Quixote

October 12, 2011 @ 7:30 pm - 12:00 am

$15 - $155

October 12-23, 2011
Choreography: Yuri Possokhov
Music: Ludwig Minkus
With the Chicago Sinfonietta
Joffrey Premiere
The Cervantes classic in the hands of a Russian choreographer. Possokhov pulls out all the stops: Bullfights, windmills and an unlikely hero in a marriage of Bolshoi ballet and earthy Spanish dance. This is a passionate ballet filled with heat and texture, flash and color, firelight and fantasy. The alluring, classical score takes on added drama as the romance and humor of the story unfolds. Possokhov’s choreography explodes with new ways to delight, entrance and make your heart melt. Performed with a full orchestra.
