Don Quixote ballet

Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre (20, Fastovskaya St., Vladivostok)
The modern Don Quixote is perhaps the champion of the ballet repertoire in terms of the dance variety if offers: it features the voices of Marius Petipa, Alexander Gorsky, Nina Anisimova, and Fedor Lopukhov, who composed the Spanish Fandango in the spirit of folklore back in 1923. In addition, many of the Basil party’s dancers and performers can easily be considered co-authors of the main hero’s choreography – the individual ideas and tricks that aim to reveal the artist’s capabilities in all its glory have often become entrenched in the text of the different variations. For soloists, Don Quixote is not only a bar of virtuosity; it is also an opportunity to plunge into the nature of the game, where even a small role can blossom with a whole bouquet of humorous colours. And this performance, in which genre scenes, distinctive choreography, and pure classics equally coexist, inevitably enchants the audience with freehearted dancing and an atmosphere of carefree festivity.

Tickets for the ballet can be purchased on the official website of the Mariinsky Theatre.
Participants must pay for the ticket out of pocket.
