    Taken from an episode of Miguel de Cervantes’ tale, the ballet follows the lofty adventures of Don Quixote into Barcelona. Here he meets Kitri, an innkeeper’s daughter whom he thinks is his ladylove Dulcinea, who is in turn enamored by Basilio, the town’s barber of whom her father doesn’t approve. Mayhem ensues as the gentleman from La Mancha unwittingly helps the two lovers have their happy ending.
