Our review on Birmingham Royal Ballet - Don Quixote
Birmingham Royal Ballet's Don Quixote - The Lowry, Salford - Friday 4th March 2022 by Amy Jackson
A visually breathtaking, uplifting show, perfect for an audience new to ballet.
This beautiful Spanish ballet has an authentic feel with the stunning set, 300 elaborate costumes and fabulous characterisation performed by a cast of 60 dancers.
The musical score was played beautifully by a live orchestra, accompanied by the use of castanets and Spanish guitar which added to the cultural atmosphere. The dancers brought depth to the musical accompaniment through their use of clicking, clapping and vocals.
The large cast of very talented dancers were simply spectacular, embodying the Spanish flavour extremely well. We can certainly see why the director Carlos Acosta calls it ‘the sunshine ballet’.
The costume and set designer - Tim Hatley deserves recognition for his magical designs which elevated the overall performance to a whole new level. Don Quixote is a visual masterpiece of drama, elegance and escapism.
The audience was filled with a range of all ages from young excited children eager to see their first ballet to retired couples looking for escapism. This was delivered by the director who kept the show light-hearted and entertaining throughout, with many comical moments and technically impressive skills. Unlike other ballet's Don Quixote does away with the princes and princesses and instead uses recognisable characters, making it perfect for a 21st century audience.
We would give the show a strong 9.5/10… go and see it whilst you can!
