Boris Eifman's ballet «Don Quixote or Fantasies of a Madman» is absolutely new reconsideration of world famous classical ballet of the past. Having kept the musical score, the choreographer creates original vision of an axiomatic drama plot, escaping from frameworks of archaic forms.

Eifman's hero the imaginations creates life full of beauty and harmony, pleasure and love. The world of illusions – is sated and light, but at contact with a bitter and gloomy reality, threatens to turn back tragedy.
