Don Quixote (Kitri's wedding) : a ballet in three acts by L Minkus( Visual )
3 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Set in sunny Spain, Don Quixote has always been popular in icy Russia. Choreographed by Mikhail Baryshnikov after Petipa and Gorsky for American Ballet Theatre, it is again a pretext for marvelous dancing. The plot is simple: in Barcelona, young Kitri and her lover Basilio must outwit her father, who wants her to marry the rich Gamache. Kitri's incidental protector is Don Quixote, who sees the feminine ideal in all the women he meets. The path of the plotting lovers travels through a tavern, a gypsy camp, a windmill attack, a fake suicide, and finally a festive wedding. Baryshnikov both pays homage to and revitalizes one of the most popular and joyful ballets in the surviving Russian imperial ballet's repertory

Rudolf Nureyev's film version of Don Quixote, which he codirected with Sir Robert Helpmann, stars the famed dancer Nureyev and Lucette Aldous of the Royal Ballet as the young lovers. Their romance flourishes with the assistance of Helpmann, who portrays the title role. Dancers of the Australian Ballet are featured in this elaborate production which was filmed in lavish color.
