Notes and Editorial Reviews

A breath-taking ensemble performance of Marius Petipa’s popular Don Quixote, loosely based on Cervantes famous novel, from the world-renowned Mariinsky Ballet. The Mariinsky’s top principal male, Leonid Sarafanov (the Prince in Decca’s Mariinsky Nutcracker, released in 2007) gives another virtuosic yet elegant performance as Basilio in this lively and colorful production.

Filmed in High-Definition, this film was recorded during the company’s successful visit to Vienna in 2006 and is part of Decca’s continuing association with this awesome ballet company, joining Swan Lake and the Nutcracker which were released in 2007.
