Pre­sented by the Queens­land Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre and Em­pire Theatre, a simul­cast of Ru­dolf Nureyev’s

Don Quixote will blow your mind this Novem­ber. Be­come part of a state-wide au­di­ence, watch­ing Italy’s cel­e­brated Teatro alla Scala Bal­let Com­pany per­form this sig­na­ture piece.

La Scala Bal­let — with their 110-strong com­pany, which in­cludes more than 75 dancers — will per­form in Aus­tralia for the first time ever.

As part of the QPAC In­ter­na­tional Series, the La Scala Bal­let per­for­mance of Don Quixote will be screened live to au­di­ences across Queens­land. Ac­com­pa­nied by the Queens­land Sym­phony Or­ches­tra,

Don Quixote show­cases cap­ti­vat­ing chore­og­ra­phy and per­for­mances from an in­ter­na­tional cast of La Scala’s prin­ci­pal and guest dancers.

Fol­low the ad­ven­tures of a no­ble­man who loses his san­ity af­ter read­ing too many chival­ric ro­mance nov­els, then de­cides to be­come a knight-er­rant to re­vive his coun­try’s chivalry un­der the name of Don Quixote.

Ru­dolf Nureyev’s ver­sion of this clas­sic story pre­miered at the Vi­enna Opera Bal­let in 1966 and still cap­ti­vates au­di­ences world­wide.

Se­cure your seat for this spec­tac­u­lar pro­duc­tion and en­joy ex­clu­sive be­hind-the-scenes in­ter­views be­fore the per­for­mance.

The per­for­mance will last for about three hours and 15 min­utes, and will in­clude two in­ter­vals.
