Event detail


Johan Kobborg, a world-class danseur who has already made himself known in major theatres as a talented choreographer, has collaborated with the Leonid Yacobson Ballet Theatre to stage his version of Don Quixote, a premiere production set to Ludwig Minkus' score and celebrating the 200th birth anniversary of Marius Petipa.

The audience have given well-deserved praise to this dynamic and vibrant performance, drenched in the blazing light of the Spanish sun, which shines upon a whirlwind of profound passion. A roller-coaster of a plot and a cast of spitfire characters are brought to life by expressive choreography and a gorgeous set design, courtesy of the world-class genius Jérôme Kaplan.
