For the revival of Rudolf
Nureyev's Don Quichotte, Octave met up with Etoile dancer Paul Marque,
Susanne Dangel, Production Manager at the Costume Department and Sabrina
Mallem, Ballet Mistress. Each of them sheds light on this piece set in 17th
century Spain. Between technical and artistic aspects, they discuss the
preparation of this ballet: the work of interpreting a fiery character like
Basilio, the creation of the matadors' colourful costumes and the rehearsal
with the soloists and the Corps de Ballet during the Dryads' scene.
