What do you have planned for your first day of vacation? (Nothing yet ????)
So join us to discover the Don Quichotte ballet show and admire the beauty of the Paris Opera !
Inspired by Marius Petipa's choreography, Rudolf Nureyev's Don Quixote is a true celebration of dance that showcases soloists and the Corps de Ballet in ensembles and pas de deux of great variety.
At the heart of the ballet, the lovers Kitri and Basilio use every trick in the book - from a puppet show to a fake suicide - to find each other, despite the resistance of Kitri's father. It is finally the Knight of La Mancha who brings the happy ending, after having fought against the windmills and met Cupid, Dulcinea and the Queen of the Dryads.
The shimmering costumes, with Spanish accents, contribute to create a lively and joyful work.
