LOVE and friendship triumph in Carlos Acosta’s vibrant production of a dazzling ballet, broadcast live from the Royal Ballet at Covent Garden to the big screen.

Don Quixote is one of Marius Petipa’s much-loved 19th-century classics. Its story is drawn from Miguel de Cervantes’s classic novel and set to Ludwig Minkus’s score.

The ballet has long been acclaimed for its virtuoso dancing, beautiful and technically demanding ‘vision scene’ and the famously bravura and breath-taking Act III pas de deux.

Carlos Acosta’s production was created for The Royal Ballet in 2013 and bring the sunshine of Spain and the exuberance of the entire Company to the stage.

Acosta created new choreography for the gypsy scene in Act II and added on-stage musicians.

This energetic and witty ballet, with characterful backdrops of Tim Hatley’s vibrant designs, will be broadcast live from London to Chepstow Drill Hall next Tuesday.

Join Don Quixote and his servant Sancho Panza on their chivalrous adventure. They meet a young couple who cannot marry because the woman’s father is determined to marry her off to the wealthy Gamache.

Don Quixote decides to intervene.

This live broadcast will be from 6.30pm on Tuesday, February 19.

Tickets are £15 or £12.50 on concession and available from visiting Chepstow Museum, or by calling: 01291 625981. Alternatively you can pay at the door on the evening.
