About the Event

While retaining the great classical pages and the strong, fiery dances, Nureyev's 1981 version for the Paris Opera Ballet gave greater emphasis to the comic dimension of Don Quichotte, contriving a particularly lively and light‐hearted production.

In 2002, Alexander Beliaev and Elena Rivkina were invited to create new sets and costumes specially for the Opera Bastille. Drawing their inspiration from paintings by Goya, they unfold a series of magnificent scenes lit up by the warm Spanish colours of the costumes and the iridescent tutus of the magical world of the dryads.
