Why See San Francisco Ballet - Don Quixote?
Thou hast seen nothing yet
San Francisco's 2012 Production of Don Quixote was widely hailed as adding a ravishing new splendour to the potentially fusty work, and now it's back for 2019. This Helgi Thomas and Yuri Possokhov staging features costumes by Tony Award winning designer Martin Pakledinaz and lighting James F. Ingalls, creating a vibrant portrait of Spanish love and desire. The 2012 production was hailed by The Huffington Post as "an impossible dream come true" and is sure to be just as fantastic this time round.
What is Don Quixote about?
While it does take its name and themes from the Cervantes' classic, this ballet differs a great deal from the novel. Needless to say it does still involves gypsies, windmills and loyal servant Sancho Panza, all threaded together with some of the most challenging dances in the classical repertoire.
Performance date: 26 January 2019
