NEW YORK, July 30, 18:22 /ITAR-TASS/. The Bolshoi Theatre’s ballet and orchestra gave one of their first planned guest performances - Don Quixote to the music of Ludwig Minkus - at the International Dance Festival in Saratoga Springs, USA, on Tuesday.

Five thousand people who gathered at the city’s Performing Arts Center greeted the Russians with a storm of applause. All the guests had been offered champagne before the ballet started. Saratoga Springs met the Russian Bolshoi Theatre with fireworks.

Don Quixote is one of the Bolshoi’s best performances.

The Bolshoi will stay in Saratoga Springs, northeastern USA, until next Saturday. The Russian ballet dancers will give several master classes to their American colleagues.
