But I am reassured by knowledge of who is responsible for the project, the same Suzanne Farell who provided new, enlarging choreography for the variations in eleven voices in the Stravinsky Variations which quickly converted my shock into delight, and who showed a new dance by a Florida colleague (when she could have presented another Balanchine revival) which proved far more satisfying than two premieres I had just seen elsewhere (more than once) by name choreographers.
To make a long story short, she knows what she's doing, evidently!

Quite a few of the Balanchine tableaux were based on the Doré illustrations for the novel. That's one reason the souvenir booklet for the ballet contained the sections of the story covered by the ballet, illustrated with reproductions of the Doré steel engravings. I still have that booklet from the first season.

The 1604 publication date for the first book of Don Quijote would make it a very young Philip III. Seems he was a rather melancholy fellow, so "stifling" would probably apply.

Has there been any news of any other venues or dates? I can't imagine that all of the time and finance invested in this production will result in five days of performance and then....nothing.
Please give me some encouragement.....

I suspect it will be one of the highlights of the first season in the new Opera House (Fall 2006) along with Kudelka's new production of Sleeping Beauty.
