Tours
The tour opened on July 25 with Don Quixote – known as the most ‘Muscovite’ of all the classical ballets. It was first produced by Marius Petipa at the Bolshoi in 1869 since when, it has occupied pride of place in the Bolshoi repertoire. Don Quixote is one of the most popular items in the Theatre’s touring programs.
