Don’t miss the return of Helgi Tomasson’s newest work for the Company, Caprice, an energetic yet elegant ballet hailed by San Francisco Classical Voice as “an expansive neoclassic piece…with inverted lifts and catches that inspired gasps from the audience.” The program continues with a world premiere by Yuri Possokhov, SF Ballet’s choreographer in residence. The program concludes with one of George Balanchine’s most iconic works: The Four Temperaments, a large-scale “sublime study of beauty, spiritual longing and poise.” (San Jose Mercury News)
