Don Quixote

Ballet San Antonio opens its first full season conceived and executed by artistic director Willy Shives with the San Antonio premiere of Don Quixote, a three-act production based on Miguel de Cervantes’ iconic novel from the Spanish Golden Age. The production is choreographed by Shives after versions of the ballet by Marius Petipa (1869) and Alexander Gorsky (1900), with music by Ludwig Minkus. Fondly known as Don Q, the ballet weaves a tale of romance, delusion and daring adventure in pursuit of dreams real and imagined. The ballet is beloved for its comedic flourishes, larger-than-life characters, and thrilling bravura dancing. There are four casts for this production and a number of children from the community are included. Opening night will feature Sally Turkel as Kitri and Daniel Westfield as Basilio. In another first for BSA, the company will begin to fulfill its mission to bring the splendor of ballet to South Texas by performing at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley October 22-23.
