The naively optimistic plot of the ballet Don Quixote cannot really be compared with the novel of the same name by Miguel de Cervantes. The ballet success over the decades lies in the theatrical, carnivalesque atmosphere, the juicy sultriness of Spain, the passion of the plot, and, of course, the stunning, fiery dances.
