City Ballet presents Don Quixote. This great classic ballet, based on Cervantes’ classic story which also inspired the musical Man of La Mancha, is any ballet lover’s dream. Presented in its entirety, fully staged with breathtaking sets and costumes, this ballet has it all – emotion, humor, romance, and the brilliant dancing that City Ballet is known for.
