The Don Quixote ballet was created by Marius Petipa, the choreographer, and Ludwig Minkus, the composer. Despite the fact that the piece is almost 150 years old, it still appeals both to the audience and artists. Marius Petipa used an episode about Gamache's wedding party from Miguel Cervantes' novel, while writing the libretto. This episode has often been used by various choreographers, but Petipa's staging in Gorsky's version is the most famous one.

The premiere of Petipa's ballet took place in 1869 in Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow. After the premiere Petipa staged a lot of new versions of Don Quixote. In 1900 Alexander Gorsky created his own version of the piece. He included many new fragments and a whole new part entitled Don Quixote's Dream, which was choreographed by him entirely.

Don Quixote was staged in the Grand Theater Łódź only once; the premiere took place on 31 May 1986. It was produced by Witold Borkowski, the choreographer, Aleksander Tracz (music director) and Jadwiga Jarosiewicz (set designer).
