The Joffrey Ballet: 'Don Quixote' Performed by Chicago Sinfonietta, Possokhov’s choreography pulls out all the stops: bullfights, gypsies, windmills and an unlikely hero in a marriage of Bolshoi ballet and earthly Spanish dance.

The Cervantes classic in the hands of a Russian choreographer. This is a passionate ballet filled with heat and texture, flash and color, firelight and fantasy.

The alluring, classical score takes on added drama as the romance and humor of the story unfolds. Possokhov’s choreography explodes with new ways to delight, entrance and make your heart melt. Performed with a full orchestra.
