Describing choreographer Alexei Ratmansky’s emotionally charged tribute to one of Russia’s greatest composers, the San Francisco Chronicle said, “Every moment feels like a fragment of a masterpiece… Simply one of the company’s most satisfying nights in years,” while the San Jose Mercury News called the work “a triumph.” Don’t miss your chance to see the groundbreaking ballet that has set the dance world on fire!
