DON QUIXOTE SUITE. José Carlos Martínez 2015

CND REPERTOIRE

  • Choreography: José Carlos Martínez (inspired on the versions of Marius Petipa and Alexander Gorski).
  • Music: Ludwig Minkus.
  • Sets: Raúl García Guerrero
  • Wardrobe design: Carmen Granell. 
  • Additional Choreography Fandango: Mayte Chico
  • Duration: 40 minutes (including Additional Fandango) 
  • World Premiere by the Spanish National Dance Company, on 14th February 2015, at the Víctor Villegas Auditorium in Murcia.

Together with Swan Lake, the Ballet Don Quixote, by Marius Petipa, was one of the most popular ballets in Russia, where it was premiered in 1869 to a musical score by Ludwig Minkus. This colourful work broke away from the eerie world of supernatural or fairylike creatures of the classical 19th century ballets and brought ordinary people to the stage.

The libretto is based on an episode of the second volume of Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes (chapter XXI, “Continuing with the wedding of Camacho and other fine events …”), and the action focuses on the troublesome love between Quiteria and Basilio rather than on the adventures of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza.

The ballet was passed on from one generation to the next uninterruptedly in Russia thanks to tradition and successive revisions, the most important of these being done by Alexander Gorski in 1900. Many choreographers have created their own versions of this great classic, for instance those of Rudolf Nureyev for the Vienna State Opera and Mikhail Baryshnikov for the American Ballet Theatre. In his Suite of Don Quixote (with extracts from the original acts one and four), José Carlos Martínez focuses further on the characters of Quiteria and Basilio, using the corps de ballet to add to the dynamic action of this timeless classic with a Spanish flavour.
