A fully-restored version of choreographer George Balanchine's 1965 ballet, Don Quixote, has been restaged by Suzanne Farrell. The ballet opens June 22nd at the Kennedy Center Opera House in Washington, D.C. Kim Kokich reports that this production is a faithful interpretation of Cervantes novel, and signifies the very important link between Balanchine and his ideal dancer and woman, Suzanne Farrell.
