    And on the eighth day, God made Ratmansky.

    I'm going to start off by saying that Ratmansky is a fantastic breath of fresh air into the ballet world. In this day and age, if you have seen one Don Quixote, you have seen them all. Until Ratmansky's production. The costumes are beautiful and bright, invoking a true picture of Spain. The sets are innovative and the most creative I have seen in quite some time. The choreography remains faithful to Petipa and Gorsky, while small additions by Ratmansky transition seamlessly. I had become tired of seeing so many Don Q's that all looked the same. This one is different in all the best ways. The dancers are all lovely, and I found myself absolutely charmed by Maia Makhateli's cupid. If it's your first Don Q, you'll never want to watch any other. If this is your four hundredth Don Q, you'll be amazed and in love with Ratmansky's keen eye for reinventing the classics without ruining them. What a wonderful production!
