You can call this production of Marius Petipa's "Don Quixote," one of the first to be staged by a Spanish dancer, as his coming out party in Philadelphia. Corella, born near Madrid in a small mountain town, sees this ballet as a way of introducing himself and his culture to the audience.

Carla Escoda

The history of Western society's obsession with women's looks can be traced through the often peculiar, but revealing, history of gender representation on the ballet stage.

Oh, What a Night: Don Quixote Returns to San Francisco Ballet

Pamela Feinsilber

This is a ballet to which I would take anyone who is new to the art form. Most of the dancing takes place in the sun-filled village square into which Don Quixote and Sancho Panza wander, on a (live) horse and mule, in their quest for adventures in chivalry.
