Under the direction of Artistic Director and Principal Choreographer Helgi Tomasson, San Francisco Ballet is the oldest professional ballet company in America and has a worldwide reputation for its vast and rich repertory, performed by a virtuoso company. Sadler's Wells is thrilled to welcome San Francisco Ballet to London, where they will present three eclectic programmes over two weeks, performing some of their most popular works of recent years.
Programme B brings together Wheeldon's atmospheric 2010 ballet Ghosts; Ashley Page's highly physical Guide to Strange Places set to pulsating music by John Adams; and Trio, choreographed by Tomasson and set to Tchaikovsky's glorious Souvenir de Florence. A visually stunning triptych of a ballet, Trio boasts set and costumes as lush as the choreography.
