About San Francisco Ballet: Programme A
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 A features choreographer Edwaard Liang’s abstract ballet Symphonic Dances, set to Rachmaninov’s intensely spiritual composition of the same name. George Balanchine’s iconic large-scale work, Divertimento No.15, set to Mozart’s chamber piece, and Christopher Wheeldon’s ethereal Within the Golden Hour, set to music by Italian composer Ezio Bosso and Vivaldi, complete the bill.
Divertimento No. 15 (Mozart / Balanchine)
Symphonic Dances (Rachmaninov / Liang)
