IMAGINE a story of a nobleman obsessed with chivalry and romance, on a quest to accomplish great feats that will bring glory to his name.
Imagine it being played out in front of you by artists at the very pinnacle of their profession, and you have a front row seat for the drama.
This is the case when a production of Don Quixote continues a season of live performances by the acclaimed Bolshoi Ballet, direct from Moscow, at the Maltings Cinema in Ely.
The screening takes place on Sunday, February 17 at 3pm.
Dancers tells the story set in Barcelona, where Lorenzo the innkeeper chases away the penniless Basilio, who is flirting with his daughter Kitri. He has already promised her hand to the rich Gamache.
When Don Quixote appears, he mistakes the inn for a castle, Lorenzo for its lord, and Kitri for Dulcinea, a princess.
