Arts Alliance Media and Great Britain’s Royal Opera House are joining forces to bring the Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season 2013-2014 to movie theaters across the United States for one night only. One of those theaters is Cinemark McCreless Market in San Antonio and it starts with Don Quixote on Wednesday October 16, 2013. Audiences will get a chance to go inside the Royal Opera House and experience one of the world’s finest ballets on the big screen.
This dance adaptation of the classic novel by Miguel Cervantes stars Carlos Acosta in his first work for The Royal Ballet. The adventures of Don Quixote and his faithful squire Sancho Panza have inspired many ballets with the most popular one being the 19th century Russian choreographer Marius Petipa’s version. With music by Ludwig Minkus Don Quixote is full of Spanish flair and atmosphere.
Don Quixote tells the story of Kitri and her sweetheart Basilio as they attempt to foil her father’s (Lorenzo’s) plans to marry her off to the rich Gamache.
