The flavors and rhythms
of old-world Spain, fiery gypsy spirit and passion, a culture of honor
and chivalry… this is the essence of Don Quixote.
Based on Cervantes’ heroic novel and set to
Ludwig Minkus' memorable score,
this classic is a ballet lover's favorite. A must see featuring
spectacular guest artists, professional company dancers and a
boisterous cast of many, Festival Ballet Theatre revives its colorful
production for the Irvine Barclay Theatre’s intimate stage.
Joining the Company as
guest artists for these performances of Don Quixote are internationally
renowned ballet dancers from American Ballet Theatre, Gillian Murphy and Marcelo Gomes.
