Steeped in the exacting traditions of Russian dance, the National Ballet of Ukraine celebrates its 150th anniversary with a two-night stint of classics. On Saturday, the NBU stages Don Quixote, with its lavish re-creation of 17th-century Spain. On Sunday, the company closes with the elaborately choreographed The Sleeping Beauty, which employs a cast of 42 dancers.
