La Scala Ballet Company – Don Quixote in Brisbane

Date: Novembre 2018

La Scala Ballet – Don Quixote – 7 to 17 Nov 2018

In the year that marks the 80th anniversary of the birth of Nureyev and the 25th of his death, La Scala Ballet Company pays tribute to his memory in this production, in repertoire at La Scala since 1980 when Nureyev himself danced alongside Carla Fracci. As heir to the Russian tradition, Nureyev’s influence is undeniable, from the rigorous symmetry of the ‘white’ act to the now infamous final grand pas de deux.
