Why See Hungarian State Opera - Don Quixote?
Don Quixote: An Effervescent Classic
With their historic home venue currently under construction, the world renowned Hungarian State Opera embarks on a historic tour of US shores, bringing the music of their homeland to New York City's Lincoln Center for a strictly limited run this Fall. The 134 year old company debuts a vibrant program of ballet and opera works, including the US premieres of Ferenc Erkel's Bank Ban and Janos Vajda's one-act opera Mario and the Magician.
Rounding off their short New York residence, the Opera brings exuberant classic Don Quixote to the stage in partnership with the Hungarian National Ballet. The fruit of choreographic legends Marius Petipa and Alexander Gorsky (a contemporary who later revived many of Petipa's works), the production's dazzling displays of bravura technique tell the story of Spanish nobleman Alonso Quixano. Deciding the world needs more chivalry, he dons the name Don Quixote de la Mancha, seeking justice and setting the world to rights with his trusty sidekick Sancho Panza.
Performance date: 9 November 2018

Bernadette Peters's is a gentler event, one of endearingly zany charms and touching warmth. She's the polish on Midler's brass.
