In this production from Teatro alla Scala, the ballet Don Quixote is shown in the legendary choreography of Rudolf Nureyev. Nureyev's intention by fusing together the worlds of commedia dell'arte and classical ballet to create a visual feast for its audience, has made Don Quixote one of the most-loved ballets world-wide. With its sparkling energy and the bright colours of the staging by Raffaele Del Savio and Anna Anni, Rudolf Nureyev's Don Quixote transports audiences with freshness, joy and choreographic splendour to a enchanting Spain, with gypsy dances, fandangos, matadors, windmills and the airy candour of the Garden of the Dryads.
