For those of you in the Washington, D.C. area, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts will be presenting the world premiere of a newly-restored recording of a 1965 performance of George Balanchine’s Don Quixote on its Millenium Stage at 6:00 this evening. This gala performance of the ballet, in which both Farrell and Balanchine appeared, originally took place on May 27, 1965. In the most recent issue of Suzanne Farrell’s Notes from the Ballet, Farrell discusses the restoration project, undertaken with the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. Ms. Farrell, along with Jerome Robbins Dance Division Curator, Michelle Potter, will briefly introduce the film at tonight’s screening. The film will be shown again in New York City at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts on September 19, 2007. Mark your calendars, New Yorkers!
