Ballet on the Big Screen
Don Quixote (Paris)
“The Knight of the Sad Face” and his faithful squire Sancho Panza, are mixed up in the wild love affairs of the stunning Kitri and the seductive Basilio in a richly colorful humorous and virtuoso ballet Marius Petipa’s Don Quichotte premiered in Moscow in 1869 with music by Ludwig Minkus and was met with resounding success from the start. The novelty lay within its break from the supernatural universe of romantic ballet. In 1981, Rudolf Nureyev introduced his own version of the work into the Paris Opera’s repertoire. While retaining the great classical pages and the strong, fiery dances, the choreographer gave greater emphasis to the comic dimension contriving a particularly lively and light-hearted production.
