New Jersey Ballet's Don Quixote
New Jersey Ballet premiered Don Quixote 2011, and it had made it to the Star-Ledger’s prestigious Top Ten dance events of the year. Don Quixote is rich in Spanish color, flavor, and the laugh-out-loud humor of Cervantes’ masterpiece about an old knight, his squire, and their foray into the age of chivalry.
The company chose Don Quixote because “It is a joyous ballet with outstanding choreography by Gorsky; a delightful spectacle popular with audiences,” said New Jersey Ballet Director Carolyn Clark. “It’s also a wonderful opportunity for the company to present another full-length ballet available to the people of New Jersey.”
