The Russian National Ballet presents:
April 27, 2013 - 8:00 PM
The Bezemes Family Theater
A full-length ballet in three acts with music by Leon Minkus and choreography by Marius Petipa, the Russian National Balletís presentation of Don Quixote is not to be missed. The ballet is based on the epic novel by Miguel de Cervantes; youíll be mesmerized by the vibrant production and spirited choreography.
The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded in Moscow during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980s, when many of the great dancers and choreographers of the Soviet Unionís ballet institutions were exercising their new-found creative freedom by starting new, vibrant companies dedicated not only to the timeless tradition of classical Russian Ballet but to invigorating this tradition as the Russians began to accept new developments in the dance from around the world.
"The Russian National Ballet Theatre, directed by Elena Radchenko, is a cut above many of its rivals.Ē
