Don Quixote, an elderly Spanish knight, sets off with his servant Sancho Panza on a chivalrous quest. He comes across a village where the innkeeper’s daughter Kitri and Basilio the barber are trying to persuade Kitri’s father to let them marry. Don Quixote fantasises that Kitri is his dream Dulcinea, a noble lady who must be rescued from this potential tragedy, and the rest of the ballet shows the comic events that finally result in love winning the day. This 1978 production by the Bolshoi Ballet shows how 19th-century choreography has evolved when performed with 20th-century technical skills.
