A preview of an upcoming article in CriticalDance's Ballet-Dance magazine:

Quote:
Premiere: “Don Quixote”

Restored film of George Balanchine’s 1965 gala performance featuring George Balanchine and Suzanne Farrell


by Carmel Morgan

September 5, 2007 -- The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Washington, DC

I was not born when the teenage Suzanne Farrell first starred in George Balanchine’s “Don Quixote.” But thanks to the restored film version of this 1965 ballet, I was able to witness for myself the nineteen year-old marvel’s extraordinary talent. Her performance as Dulcinea, the object of Don Quixote’s affection, was full of incredible vulnerability and charm. In addition, the film portrayed a rare stage performance of the master, George Balanchine, who was heart-rending as the aging dreamer, Don Quixote. 


More in the October issue of the magazine to be published October 14.
