Filled with the bright colors of sunny Spain, bravura, high-flying jumps and sizzling spins, Don Quixote is set to one of the most well-known ballet scores ever written in the work of Ludwig Minkus, and its choreography, originally set by the masterful Marius Petipa and adapted for Richmond Ballet by Beriozoff in 1985 is strong, sassy and overflowing with energy.
