The Royal Ballet's DON QUIXOTE To Screen In US Cinemas This March And April

The Royal Ballet's production of Carlos Acosta's charming and fun Don Quixote will screen in US cinemas across March and April 2019. The production is filed from the Royal Opera House in London's Covent Garden.

The ballet explores love, friendship and adventure. The knight Don Quixote and his servant, Sancho Panza, meet love-lorn couple Kitri (Akane Takada) and her sweetheart Basilio who are unable to marry as Kitri's father wants her to marry the wealthy Gamache. Don Quixote, in true heroic style, intervenes and convinces Gamache he would rather marry the barmaid - this allows Kitri and Basilio to wed.

Carlos Acosta's 2013 production of Marius Petipa's 19th-century ballet brings Spanish warmth and joy to the stage. Acosta adds energy and wit to the ballet, particularly with the new choreography for Act II's gypsy scene, which brings musicians onto the stage to add to the lively atmosphere.

Don Quixote will screen in major markets on April 2 2019. Further details and venues are available here:

The Royal Opera House cinema broadcasts offer audiences the best seats in the house, include exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, interviews and incredibly detailed close-ups of performers. Audiences are never far from a performance at the Royal Opera House. In 2017/18 more than one million people globally saw a production of world-class opera or ballet from the Royal Opera House at one of more than 1,500 cinemas in 51 countries.

Don Quixote lasts approximately two hours and 45 minutes with two intervals. The next production in the Royal Opera House live cinema season is The Royal Opera's La forza del destino starring Jonas Kaufmann and Anna Netrebko.
