The Moscow Festival Ballet makes its annual visit to the Niswonger Performing Arts Center with the production of the timeless classic, Don Quixote, on Monday, March 5th at 7:00 p.m.
Leading dancers from across Russia have forged, under the direction of Sergei Radchecnko, an exciting new company staging a new production of Don Quixote.
Don Quixote is on a quest to find the idealized beloved of his age-addled dreams. He calls upon his servant, Sancha Panza, and the two sail forth into the world to seek adventures in the service of the beautiful Dulcinea. The mettlesome lovers Kitri and Basilio are also on a quest, to end up together, despite Kitri’s father and his plans for her to marry the richest man in town. Their paths meet and after a storm, a vision, shenanigans and a little emotional blackmail, ballet’s funniest happy ending is achieved.
The Moscow Festival Ballet was founded in 1989 when legendary principal dancer of the Bolshoi Ballet Sergei Radchecnko sought to realize his vision of a company which would bring together the highest classical elements of the great Bolshoi and Kirov Ballet companies in an independent new company within the framework of Russian classic ballet. Since its inception, the Moscow Festival Ballet has completed multiple tours throughout the world to enthusiastic audiences.
