3.0 out of 5 stars A complete recording has yet to appear November 9, 2009
Although this recording by the Sofia National Opera Orchestra claims to be "complete", it most certainly is not. Rather, it is a complete recording of whichever score the Sofia National Opera Orchestra was able to obtain. A complete recording of Ludwig Minkus's (1826-1917) full, un-cut score for Marius Petipa's "Don Quixote" has yet to be produced.

November 9] 1871 was a resounding success, and lead to a long collaboration between Petipa and Minkus that would last until 1886. It was Alexander Gorsky's new version of Petipa's "Don Quixote" that would serve as the basis for all modern productions. Gorsky originally staged his version for the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, the first performance taking place on December 19 [O.S. December 6] 1900. This version modified Petipa's scenario to 3 acts and 6 tableaux, and Minkus's score was trimmed and supplemented with new music by the composer Anton Simon. In 1902 the Director of the St.
