"Don Quixote," Joffrey Ballet, October, the Auditorium. A delightful new full-length for the troupe. Yuri Possokhov's fast-moving, entertaining production got great help from Wendall Harrington's scenic projections, Von Orthal Puppets' exquisite horse and, among fine work from all the dancers, charismatic guest artist Carlos Quenedit as Basilio at key performances.
