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.
