The Australian Ballet
State Orchestra of Victoria
Filmed in Melbourne with the Australian Ballet in 1973, the cast includes Nureyev as Basilio, Sir Robert Helpmann as the deluded knight and Lucette Aldous as Kitri. This timeless story of love, gallantry and misadventure – all unfolding with Minkus’s exhilarating Spanish-flavoured music – has stood the test of time as one of the world’s most popular ballets.
Lovingly restored from the original 35mm film, and to be heard for the first time in full surround sound digital stereo created for the DVD and Blu-ray release, this is finally, how Nureyev intended his Don Quixote to be seen and heard.
“The finest full-length dance film ever.” – Dance Magazine
“One of the best ballet films we’ve had to date.” – New York Magazine
“Something more than cinema, greater than dance. It was like a moving painting by a great artist.” – Atlantic Herald
