The Joffrey Ballet Presents
The World Premiere of Yuri Possokhov’s Don Quixote
Live accompaniment by The Chicago Sinfonietta
Possokhov returns to the Joffrey to present a fresh interpretation of the classic story written by Miguel de Cervantes.
Possokhov seeks to tell the traditional Spanish story – with familiar
characters Kitri and her beloved Basilio, the foppish Gamache,
side-kick Sancho Panza, plus toreadors and mythical Dryads – but from
the perspective of Don Quixote himself. An aging nobleman obsessed with
reading books about chivalry, Don Quixote imagines himself to be a
valiant knight off to rescue the damsel Dulcinea in a world where
windmills become monsters and a new adventure awaits beyond every
horizon. Possokhov uses humor and drama to breathe new life into the
timeless tale about love, honor and passion.
