Carlos Acosta’s thrilling ballet Don Quixote will be shown at almost 200 cinemas across the UK in a dazzling one-night event on 26 October 2022.
Created by Carlos Acosta and performed by the Birmingham Royal Ballet, starring award winning dancers Momoko Hirata and Brandon Lawrence.
“Don Quixote is the best ballet to attend if you are not a ballet connoisseur,” Carlos Acosta says. “If you don’t know anything about ballet, this is a great chance to learn about it. Don Quixote also appeals to family audiences, and it is great for children because the story is entertaining and easy to follow.”
Following the hugely successful UK tour of Don Quixote in Spring 2022, Carlos Acosta and his team created a film version of the live production using innovative new digital techniques.
The film includes an exclusive interview with Carlos Acosta as well as behind the scenes footage.
About Don Quixote
The ballet is based on Spain’s most famous novel, Miguel de Cervantes’s Don Quixote, which follows the adventures of knight Don Quixote and his trusty servant Sancho Panza.
The ballet focuses on one of the tales in the book – that of young lovers Kitri and Basilio, whose hopes to marry risk being thwarted by Kitri’s father. A firm believer in true love, Don Quixote sets to help the young couple find happiness.
