IMPERIAL RUSSIAN BALLET COMPANY
Don Quixote was first performed in Moscow’s Bolshoi Theatre in 1869. Since then it has been performed all over the world by Russian and international ballet companies. The Imperial Russian Ballet Company will perform their full-length version of Don Quixote at the TSB Showplace in March!
Don Quixote is a retired gentleman from the region of La Mancha in Central Spain. He decides to take up his sword to defend the helpless and destroy the wicked. Travelling the roads of Spain with his somewhat bewildered labourer named Sancho Panza in search of glory and grand adventure, he gives up food, shelter and comfort all in the name of a peasant woman, Dulcinea del Toboso, whom he envisions as a princess.
