Ludwig Minkus’s score for the ballet is bursting with bravura flourishes, high-kicking music that simply begs to be danced to—and audiences will experience the rare opportunity to hear it performed live, as the full Virginia Symphony Orchestra accompanies the ballet in the pit. Originally created by the great choreographer Marius Petipa for Russia’s Bolshoi Ballet in 1869, ABT’s production of Don Quixote was staged by Artistic Director Kevin Mackenzie and features gorgeous costumes and sets by Tony Award-winning designer Santo Loquasto (Hello, Dolly!) and lighting by Tony Award winner Natasha Katz (Disney’s Aida, An American in Paris).
