Don Quixote – Recreating A Work In Progress

Suzanne Farrell takes another look at Balanchine’s Don Quixote. The piece hasn’t been performed since 1978. “During the 13 years of its life, Balanchine made numerous changes to the ballet, adding dances, taking out divertissements, cutting sections. There never was a true “finished” version, so she has had to decide what to keep, what to cut, what to preserve.”
