Summary Set in sunny Spain, Don Quixote has always been popular in icy Russia. Choreographed by Mikhail Baryshnikov after Petipa and Gorsky for American Ballet Theatre, it is again a pretext for marvelous dancing. The plot is simple: in Barcelona, young Kitri and her lover Basilio must outwit her father, who wants her to marry the rich Gamache. Kitri's incidental protector is Don Quixote, who sees the feminine ideal in all the women he meets. The path of the plotting lovers travels through a tavern, a gypsy camp, a windmill attack, a fake suicide, and finally a festive wedding. Baryshnikov both pays homage to and revitalizes one of the most popular and joyful ballets in the surviving Russian imperial ballet's repertory
