Don Quixote, one of Marius Petipa's most popular classics, is packed with sunny, exciting dances that promise you to make you smile. Set in Spain, the ballet has been loved for its breadth of virtuoso dancing including that of cheerful Seguidille, stylish dance of Toreadors, energetic dance in the gypsy scene, beautiful classical dance by Dyrads and the famously bravura Act III pas de deux.

The Tokyo Ballet's Don Quixote was produced and choreographed by legendary dancer Vladimir Vasiliev, known as the "God of the Dance", after Marius Petipa and Alexander Gorsky. Vasiliev's version is an elaborate fusion of tradition of the Bolshoi Ballet and modernity.

Join us for a sparkling love comedy with Don Quixote!

Heroic, dynamic with an unparalleled virtuoso technique and romantic intensity, he was especially acclaimed for leading roles such as in Don Quixote, Spartacus and Romeo and Juliet. He was General and Artistic Director of the Bolshoi Theatre from 1995 to 2000.
