Don Quixote at State Theatre

When: Fri., May 13 2011

It's been nearly nine years since the Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg last visited Cleveland, but they return tonight in a big way, with a complex, expressive staging of Don Quixote, or Fantasies of a Madman. An original dance-drama created by company founder and sole choreographer Boris Eifman, the ballet is set in an asylum and focuses on its bizarre and pitiful inmates — some of whom imagine themselves to be the characters in Miguel de Cervantes' novel. Given Eifman's rep as one of the world's most innovative choreographers, expect to see a spectacular piece of theater. Tonight's curtain is at 8 p.m.; additional performance are set for tomorrow and Sunday. Tickets range from $10 to $65; snag them by calling 216-241-6000 or online at The State Theatre is at 1519 Euclid Ave. in Playhouse Square. — Cicora
