Notes & Reviews:
Don Quichot - an audience favourite of prestigious companies worldwide - is a dazzling display of high spirits, virtuosity and Spanish temperament. The flamboyant leaps, dizzying pirouettes and crisp pointe work that are standard features of this production give the performers every opportunity to show off their technical prowess. Leading Russian choreographer Alexei Ratmansky has drawn inspiration from his production from the libretto of the first version of Don Quichot, created in 1869. The modern designs for the ballet, by the renowned French designer Jerome Kaplan, refer to the time of Cervantes. Special features include a behind-the-scenes with interviews and footage filmed by a dancer using a "bodycam." "A magic moment of ballet." - Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
The familiar pas de deux is now a grand pas, with solos for the two friends and interpolations from the corps providing a spectacular finish.
A treasurable disc and a must-see for all ballet fans.
