Program 06  |  Mar 31 – April 15

Following a sold-out run in 2016, we proudly present a reprise of Helgi Tomasson’s strikingly modern Swan Lake featuring “choreography that, at its core, is sublime” (The Mercury News). Stunning visual effects, crisp storytelling, and virtuosic dance combine in a work that is as magnificent as it is moving. The New York Times called Swan Lake “beautifully lyrical.” You’ll call it simply magical.

Made for SF Ballet

Program 07  |  April 5 – 18

The LA Times called Helgi Tomasson’s Trio, “elegant and engrossing.” The SF Chronicle said it was “sheer extroversion.” This program features the world premiere SF Ballet dancer Myles Thatcher's second new work for us, Ghost in the Machine. Christopher Wheeldon’s inventive and mystical Within the Golden Hour© completes this meditation on contemporary classicism and ballet at its best.

“Where ballet goes from here is anyone’s guess, but as dancers and choreographers continue to flock to Tomasson, the tell-tale signs may well be found in California.”
