January 30-31 Don Quixote- Russian National Ballet Theatre
Armstrong Auditorium, Edmond
Info: The immense popularity of Leon Minkus’ Dox Quixote was thanks in large part to American Ballet Theatre artistic director Mikhail Baryshnikov’s 1983 production, broadcast nationwide on public television from the Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center. Set in classical Spain, the old nobleman Don Quixote de la Mancha believes himself called to knightly deeds. With his squire Sancha Panza, he sails forth into the world to seek adventures in the service of the beautiful Dulcinea, whom he has glimpsed in a vision. Don Quixote features some of Marius Petipa’s most captivating choreography, with daring leaps and high extensions woven together with rousing corps de ballet segments showcasing the great Flamenco tradition.
