Ballet 'Don Quixote' brings bullfighters, gypsies, romance and chivalry to McCain

MANHATTAN — The Russian National Ballet Theatre will perform "Don Quixote," the ballet based on Miguel de Cervantes' epic tale of romance and chivalry at 4 p.m. Sunday, April 26, in Kansas State University's McCain Auditorium.
