Don Quixote

Presented by the Boston Ballet and Artistic Director Mikko Nissinen.

Embark on a quest for true love with dreamer Don Quixote and his faithful squire Sancho. Follow them through the Spanish countryside as they pursue romantic ideals, battle imaginary dragons, and get mixed up in the merry misadventures of two passionate young lovers. This charming rom-com culminates in a grand wedding scene that contains some of the most dynamic and demanding dancing in classical ballet.

The sparkling wit of Miguel de Cervantes’ classic novel is brought to life with virtuosic choreography by Rudolf Nureyev and a spirited score by Ludwig Minkus. With spectacular sets, swirling skirts, and a colorful cast of characters, this heartwarming tale of romance and chivalry is pure fun for the whole family.
