Below is the full pas de deux from Don Quixote 3rd act (Wedding Pas De Deux) of Kitri and Basil. This is the Bolshoi Ballet version with Maria Alexandrova and Vladislav Lantratov.

This video is also the Don Quixote pas de deux, however it is with the Kirov Ballet, the dancers being Olesya Novikova and Leonid Sarafanov.

Both couples are some of my favorite dancers, and they are all wonderfully talented and different in their technical and artistic approach to this pas de deux, and I think it is very interesting when comparing the two. Enjoy!
