WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Broadcasts directly from the National Theatre, Royal Opera House and other famous theatres around the world onto a big screen. Most broadcasts are of live performances but "Encore" screenings of previous famous productions are also given.
Cuban-born star dancer Carlos Acosta has created a new ballet based on Marius Petipa's classic choreography of the adventures of Cervantes' bumbling knight, set to Ludwig Minkus' instantly appealing, strongly Spanish influenced music. Don Quixote is a wonderfully entertaining ballet with grand pas de deux and lively crowd scenes.
