SFB 2019 Don Quixote (Program 1)

Recommended Posts

Madison Keesler on hosting the student matinees:

"I absolutely loved being able to host the Student Matinee performance of @sfballet’s Don Quixote this past week!
.
As the host I was responsible for collaboratively writing a script and speaking to around 3000 children and teens in our opera house (@sfwarmemorial). I gave a brief description of the story, introduced the characters, taught a little pantomime, and more.
.
It was a great challenge and I loved every second. I'm looking forward to working on the script for the next student matinee for Sleeping Beauty."

Sounds like Keesler is working on making this a regular thing.

It was good to hear a bit about Walsh and Park's preparations for their Don Q debuts (seems like it's probably time to have an interview with Park as well).

Off subject: It's worth noting that in Walsh's interview he mentions that both he and Lauren Strongin are dancing a duet in the new Liam Scarlett ballet, so Strongin can't be out for much longer.  ;)
