With Live Accompaniment by the Chicago Philharmonic!

Ballet Nacional de Cuba returns to Chicago for the first time in 15 years with company director Alicia Alonso’s Don Quixote. The company puts a distinctly Cuban spin on the classic ballet, elevated by Ludwig Minkus’ acclaimed score, performed by the Chicago Philharmonic. Loosely based on the story by Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote has been heralded as an “unforgettable” production (The Los Angeles Times) that will make you “fall in love with ballet all over again” (The Washington Post).
