Don Quixote

Don Quixote retells Cervantes’s timeless, comedy-infused tale through classical dance. It was originally adapted by 19th-century choreographer Marius Pepita, and it was whisked into the ballet canon by Gorsky’s 1900 Bolshoi performance,

The story follows the exploits of the country squire and his trusty page as they sally thither and yon, entangling themselves in the madcap adventures, passionate emotions, and butterfly-net collections of those around them. Set amid the rustic villages of the Spanish countryside, Don Quixote enfolds the dancers into the artistic action with elaborate costumes and precision pirouettes. What’s more, these particular performances have personal ties for the Pennsylvania Ballet: Artistic Director Angel Corella brings Pepita’s choreography to the stage with his own accomplished style, showcasing the skills that have earned him roles with leading ballet companies the world over.

Pennsylvania Ballet

Pennsylvania Ballet has deep ties to dance history. The company was formed in 1963 by Barbara Weisberger, a protégé of the great George Balanchine. Perhaps due to that remarkable connection, the ballet's mission has always been to celebrate the classics. An annual staging of Balanchine's The Nutcracker and other favorites pay tribute to dance's traditional beauty. But the artists still look to the future of the art form, which surprisingly doesn't involve pieces set to laserbeats. The group is known for innovative takes on canonical fixtures, from a re-imagined Swan Lake to the world premiere of Matthew Neenan's Carmina Burana.
