Helgi Tomasson and Yuri Possokhov’s staging of Don Quixote returns in its entire splendor, now with spectacular all-new scenery and costumes by Tony Award winning designer Martin Pakledinaz and lighting by James F.

Miguel de Cervantes’ romantic and witty story, placed in the colorful streets of Spain, comes to life with a lively cast of characters, along with the bravado and excitement of some of classical ballet’s most technically demanding dances.

Approximate program length: 2 hours, 30 minutes.

Composer: Léon Minkus

Don Quixote is best enjoyed by adults and children 8 years and older.
