One of Russia's most esteemed ballet companies, the Moscow Festival Ballet, presents the timeless story of "Don Quixote." "Don Quixote" is a ballet based on the world-famous novel "Don Quixote de la Mancha" by Miguel de Cervantes. Set in the 1600s, the story features the escapades of a Spanish hidalgo who goes by the name of Don Quixote and his trusty squire Sancho Panza.

The Moscow Festival Ballet was founded in 1989 by Sergei Radchenko, legendary principal dancer of the Bolshoi Ballet. Under his direction, the company brings together the highest classical elements of the great Bolshoi and Kirov Ballet companies and has performed to great acclaim worldwide.
