SF Ballet

PROGRAM 7

SF Ballet, Opera House, PROGRAM 7. The LA Times called Helgi Tomasson’s Trio, “elegant and engrossing.” The SF Chronicle said it was “sheer extroversion.” Set to Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous Souvenir de Florence, Trio evokes emotion-laden memories in three elegant movements. SF Ballet dancer Myles Thatcher has taken the ballet world by storm with recent commissions for New York City Ballet and The Joffrey Ballet, following our 2015 debut of his Manifesto. This program features his second new work for us. Christopher Wheeldon’s inventive and mystical Within the Golden Hour© completes this meditation on contemporary classicism and ballet at its best.
