Ballet in HD: Ludwig Minkus' Don Quixote (Jan 27)
Sunday, January 27, 2013
at The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute
225 South Street
Leading Russian choreographer Alexei Ratmansky has created this Dutch National Ballet production exclusively for the company. "Don Quixote" is a dazzling display of high spirits, virtuosity and Spanish temperament. The flamboyant leaps, dizzying pirouettes and crisp pointe work give the performers every opportunity to show off their technical prowess. But at the same time, the comic story based on Cervantes' masterpiece makes strong demands on the dancers' acting abilities. The leading Russian choreographer Alexei Ratmansky has drawn inspiration for his production from the libretto by Marius Petipa, created in 1869. The former artistic director of the Bolshoi Ballet and Artist in Residence of the American Ballet Theatre now has also added his own new elements and choreography to the ballet.
