Checking out ‘Don Quixote’ at the SF Ballet

September 26, 2019

One of my favorite things to do in San Francisco is to treat myself to a nice show (jazz, ballet, symphony… you name it).  Normally, I prefer a classical ballet but I decided to take myself on a date to the SF Ballet’s rendition of Don Quixote and it did not disappoint.

In true Kere fashion, I arrived late…  5 minutes to be exact, but it might as well have been 45 minutes.  Anyone who’s into the fine arts *I’m saying this in a British accent as I write this* knows that this is a big no no.  So I was seated me all the way in the back to make sure my late arrival didn’t disrupt the theater.

I will say that maybe my eyesight is terrible, but it was really hard to follow the beginning of the show as I wasn’t 100% sure what was happening on stage at times.

Luckily, during intermission I was able to go to my actual seat and view the last half of the performance from there.  I loved the Spanish influence and the Flamenco/Ballet fusion that the choreographer incorporated, but I’ll be honest, classical ballet (think string instruments and piano) is still my favorite!
