Inspired by the choreography of Marius Petipa, Rudolf Nureyev's Don Quixote is a real dance feast that highlights soloists and ballet corps in ensembles and footsteps of a great variety. At the heart of the ballet, the lovers Kitri and Basilio use all the tricks - from the spectacle of guignol to false suicide - to find themselves, despite the resistance of Kitri's father. It is finally the Chevalier de la Mancha who brings the happy ending, having struggled against the mills and met Cupid, Dulcinea and the Queen of Dryads. The shimmering costumes, with Spanish accents, contribute to creating a lively and joyful work.
