Ben Stevenson's Don Quixote Returns After 12 Years
Twelve years since it was last staged, The Houston Ballet presents a rollicking revival of former artistic director Ben Stevenson's Don Quixote. An adaptation that inspired by Petipa's original choreography, the story stays true to Miguel de Cervantes' classic novel. Don't miss the high energy comic ballet as it closes the company's 2017/18 season.
The story follows the misadventures of elderly Spanish gentleman Don Quixote, who rides through the countryside in search of fame and glory. Setting side all wealth, food, comfort and shelter, the delusional knight and his unfortunate but trusty side kick Sancho Panza search for Quixote's true love, Dulcinea, whom they believe to be a princess cursed to the life of a peasant woman. A parallel romance between young Kitri and Basilio becomes entangles in the Don's search for his true love.
