A: The sets and props filled seven 40’ high cube containers; costumes filled another container. These are the large containers that you see at the port coming in on ocean-going ships. For most of our story ballets the stage is set to create between 1700-1800 square feet of dancing space. Don Quixote is so expansive that there will be 2200 square feet of dancing space. There was more lumber and building material used to construct this ballet than Coppelia, Cinderella, and The Sleeping Beauty combined.The set and costumes together has been said to be of a value of $3,000,000.
