Join us for a very special one-night-only farewell performance on Sunday, April 17 at 7pm as we honor three of SF Ballet’s most celebrated principal men—Joan Boada, Pascal Molat, and Gennadi Nedvigin.

The program features a variety of works and excerpts designed specifically to showcase the talents of all three dancers. The medley includes Tomasson's Romeo & Juliet balcony pas de deux, Concerto Grosso and Two Bits; the trio section from Possokhov's Magrittomania; a solo from McGregor's Borderlands; excerpts from Zanella's Alles Walzer, and Kobborg's Les Lutins

Said SF Ballet Artistic Director and Principal Choreographer Helgi Tomasson, “Joan, Pascal and Gennadi are all incredible artists who have had long, rich tenures with the Company and I am grateful to each of them for their many contributions. We will miss them on our home stage, but we look forward to celebrating their unique artistry and achievements with this farewell performance.”

Join us, and help us send them off in style.
