Don Quixote

Presented by Pacific Northwest Ballet

“A visual explosion of costume and color, spirited dancers, and humorous acting…a brilliant theatrical success.” —City Arts

Alexei Ratmansky’s genius for revitalizing classic ballets is the talk of the dance world. America had its first look at his staging of Don Quixote when PNB premiered it to great acclaim in 2012. Vast in every sense—from Jérôme Kaplan’s colossal sun-bleached sets and vibrant costumes to the expansive sweep of the choreography—Don Quixote is informed by Ratmansky’s technical fluency punctuated by carefree humor. A perfectly crafted story ballet, the plot follows its visionary hero to the city of Barcelona, where he becomes entangled in the affairs of spirited young lovers. Bravura dancing, captivating character players, and stunning stagecraft combine with Ludwig Minkus’ rousing score to deliver a tremendous theater experience to audiences of all ages.
