Program notes

Relive the whimsical adventures of Kitri, Basilio, and Don Quixote, live from the hallowed stage of the magnificent Mariinsky Theatre. Léon Minkus’s music and the timeless choreography by Alexander Gorsky (following Marius Petipa's original) make this ballet an unending source of wonder. Soslan Kulaev shines in the title role, with the magnificent Viktoria Tereshkina and Kimin Kim as Kitri and Basilio, all surrounded by the sublime dancers of the peerless Mariinsky Ballet. The orchestra’s interpretation of the score draws the audience into the veritably quixotic universe of this landmark of the ballet repertoire.

This is just one of many beautiful ballets available on, the web's leading classical music streaming platform!
