Pennsylvania Ballet: Don Quixote

Pennsylvania Ballet will premiere a new production of Don Quixote by Artistic Director Angel Corella.

Don Quixote, a classic comedy, features fancy footwork, authentic Spanish flavored dance, and comic interludes bringing to life the story based on Cervantes’ classic novel. In the ballet, the idealistic, eccentric Don Quixote goes on a quest in search of his ideal woman Dulcinea –while real-life lovers Kitri and Basilio battle against all odds to unite in true love.

Born in Madrid, Spain, Corella joined American Ballet Theatre in 1995 and was quickly promoted to principal dancer. Corella excelled in a wide range of repertory and has danced such iconic roles as Prince Siegfried in Swan Lake, Romeo in Romeo and Juliet, and The Nutcracker Prince in The Nutcracker. He has also appeared as a guest artist with the Royal Ballet in London, the Kirov Ballet in Russia, and New York City Ballet.
