San Francisco Ballet Programme C description
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 C is comprised of four works: Mark Morris' Beaux, a playful colourful work for nine men featuring costumes by Isaac Mizrahi; San Francisco Ballet Choreographer in Residence Yuri Possokhov's interpretation of Prokofiev's Classical Symphony; Possokhov's multimedia dance theatre work RAKU, based on the story of the burning of KyotoÂ?s Golden Pavilion in 1950; and Christopher Wheeldon's ethereal Within the Golden Hour, set to music by Italian composer Ezio Bosso and Vivaldi.
