Houston Ballet presents Don Quixote

Houston Ballet is pleased to conclude the 2017/18 Season with the revival of former Artistic Director Ben Stevenson’s Don Quixote. Enjoy the charming flare of seventeenth century Barcelona, Spain as imagined in the original novel by Miguel de Cervantes.

Don Quixote, in his old age, is growing increasingly anxious and depressed. In a vision he beholds the lady of his dreams, Dulcinea. His servant, Sancho Panza, enters pursued by angry shopkeepers from whom he has stolen a chicken. The Don rescues him, and is rejuvenated by thoughts of Dulcinea, heroic tales of brave knights, and past battles that he has won. Don Quixote, accompanied by Sancho Panza, sets out on a new quest to find the beautiful Dulcinea, only to be caught between the budding romance of temperamental Kitri and mischievous Basilio. Audiences are sure to enjoy this famously jovial ballet, full of dazzling choreography, sets, and costumes. 

This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30am-1pm. If tickets remain at 1pm, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill.
