pageantries rich in traditional spanish-inspired dances, <don quixote> features the dance of matador’s waving about red manteau, ballet bolero, fandango, seguidilla, and the exquisite pas de deux of kitre and basil. the comical mimes of scene stealers continuously created a jubilant mood. of the numerous <don quixote> versions, the korea national ballet introduced the bolshoi’s gorsky version. the premiere in 1991 caused a great sensation.
<don quuixote> is based on chivalric episode. the hero, don quixote, starts off on an adventure with his squire sancho panza in tow. he is driven by his version of dulcinea, his ideal soul mate. the focus of this ballet draws upon the romantic of kitri and basil rather than “bravado” adventures.
