About San Francisco Ballet: Programme B
San Francisco Ballet - Three Mixed Bills
Under the direction of Artistic Director & Principal Choreographer Helgi Tomasson, San Francisco Ballet is the oldest professional ballet company in America and has a worldwide reputation for its vast and rich repertory, performed by a virtuoso company. Sadler’s Wells is thrilled to welcome San Francisco Ballet to London, where they will present three eclectic programmes over two weeks, performing some of their most popular works of recent years.
Programme B brings together Wheeldon’s atmospheric 2010 ballet Ghosts; SF Ballet Choreographer in Residence Yuri Possokhov’s multimedia dance theatre work RAkU, based on the story of the burning of Kyoto’s Golden Pavilion in 1950; and Trio, choreographed by Tomasson and set to Tchaikovsky’s glorious Souvenir de Florence. A visually stunning triptych of a ballet, Trio boasts set and costumes as lush as the choreography.
