"Nureyev's Don Quixote"
 
   My tickets arrived last week and I've started looking forward to seeing Don Q in the new season ! I've never seen this version before. But I've got that video with Nereyev himself, Robert Helpmann and Lucette Aldous. This is a dance film, not a stage performance. But is this the same one RB will be dancing ? I only know that he created it for the Vienna State Opera Ballet and the POB and La Scala have it as their repertoire. According to the new season's guide, the sets will be by Anne Fraser and the costumes will be by Barry Kay. Have the POB different sets and costumes ? I've seen a lot of photos of POB's Don Q and their costumes are lovely. I would be grateful to get some ideas !

   And, what is the difference between the Nureyev's version and Baryshnikov's ?

   Baryshnikov's, as danced by RB at least, was the best ballet cure for insomnia I knew of. I saw the Royal Swedish Ballet do the Nureyev here a few years ago, and it was far more fun (and yes, I assume it's pretty much like the film version, making allowances for the greater freedom that filming allows).
