National Ballet of Ukraine presents Don Quixote
The National Ballet of Ukraine will present the famously jovial Don Quixote, starring special guest, Teatro Alla Scala soloist, Leonid Sarafanov. An outstanding classical ballet piece is conspicuous for the dazzling choreography, unsurpassed sets, and vivid costumes. A most admired dancing performance of the 20th century staged by the Company presents a remarkable example of the classical Russian ballet techniques mingled with the contemporary interpretation of dancing methods, so that the lightweight and precise performers’ movements appear as soaring over the stage.
Composed by Ludwig Minkus and originally choreographed by Marius Petipa, this ballet recreates a charming flare of 17th century Spain as imagined in the original novel by Miguel de Cervantes. It is a unique performance to see since the ballet will be staged as a part of the company’s 150th Anniversary tour in the USA.
