Return to the Studios
Helgi Tomasson on the Return to Studios and Creating a New Work
“Seeing the dancers so happy to be back in the studio, it’s very inspiring,” says Helgi Tomasson, who has created a new work for the 88th Season Opening Gala Performance, part of Leap into the New Year, SF Ballet’s 2021 Virtual Benefit.
Hosted on January 14 by SF Ballet Soloist Madison Keesler, the online event will feature seven newly captured ballets, including the SF Ballet debuts of Principal Dancers Nikisha Fogo and Julian MacKay; a prelude to Mrs. Robinson, Cathy Marston’s 2021 Season world premiere; as well as excerpts from the 2021 Digital Season’s additional world premieres by Danielle Rowe and Myles Thatcher.
