Posted 08 March 2006 - 07:11 AM
"The Kennedy Center's own ballet company performs two programs to include Bejart's Rite of Spring, the scene d'amour from Bejart's Romeo and Juliet as part of the Shakespeare in Washington festival, and Balanchine classics."
Perofrmances scheduled for early June 2007.

These are relatively early works. I have very non-specific memories of his Rite of Spring from the 60s but recall it as quite exciting. Oddly, I remember the excitement more than the actual ballet.
I'm glad that Farrell remains committed to honoring the Bejart portion of her career.

Excerpts from the love scene from Bejart's "Romeo and Juliet" can be seen in "Suzanne Farrell: Elusive Muse," danced by Farrell and her great partner during the Bejart years, Jorge Donn, who died in 1992. In her autobiography, Suzanne says she and Donn had in common being idolized by their ballet masters, and expresses great affection for him.
