Ballet by Rudolf Nurejev after Marius Petipa

Don Quixote

In 2018 the ballet world will celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of French choreographer Marius Petipa. To mark this milestone, the Hamburg Ballet is pleased to announce the addition of one of Petipa's most significant works, "Don Quixote", to our repertoire. As one of the most popular of Petipa's creation, Neumeier wishes to present "Don Quixote" to the Hamburg audience – joining such masterpieces of international choreographers such as Frederick Ashton's "La Fille mal gardée", George Balanchine's "Jewels" and Jerome Robbins' "Dances at a Gathering/The Concert". After extensive research, Neumeier feels, that Rudolf Nurejev's vision of "Don Quixote" was not only the most authentic and meaningful interpretation of Petipa's work, but also a wonderful vehicle to illuminate the skill and artistry of our dancers.
