Critics Laud SF Ballet’s “Don Quixote”

As noted in an ealier post, Don Quixote marks the first of two evening-length story ballets in the San Francisco Ballet’s 2022 Season.

The performance received a wild standing ovation at the War Memorial Opera House on Saturday, Feb. 26, when a supremely gifted cast opened a nine-performance run.

Rachel Howard, a prominent dance critic and Bay Area freelance writer, told readers of the San Francisco Chronicle that this is “pure entertainment: fluffy costumes, comic high jinks, and even a live horse or two.”
