Shostakovich Trilogy

Alexei Ratmansky’s hit Shostakovich Trilogy returns to SF Ballet after garnering ecstatic critical and audience acclaim at its 2014 SF Ballet premiere. Declared "a masterpiece" by SF Chronicle, and “fascinating, poetic, and enigmatic” by The New York Times, Ratmansky’s trilogy, a SF Ballet co-commission with American Ballet Theatre, is made up of three distinct ballets—Symphony #9, Chamber Symphony, and Piano Concerto #1—set to Dmitri Shostakovich’s orchestral works.​
