The eighth and final program of San Francisco Ballet’s 2015 season is currently underway at the War Memorial Opera House; seven more performances remain before the curtain falls on Artistic Director Helgi Tomasson’s Romeo & Juliet. Though the company’s season officially closes on Sunday, May 10th, there are still opportunities to see this phenomenal artistic institution over the next few months.
Stern Grove Festival’s line-up was just recently announced and San Francisco Ballet will appear on Sunday, July 26th as part of the Festival’s 78th season. But May holds another not-to-be-missed event – San Francisco Ballet School’s Student Showcase, a three-night engagement at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater. This special program features Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s Soirées Musicales (US premiere) and Helgi Tomasson’s Bartók Divertimento, along with new work choreographed by San Francisco Ballet company members. Join the entire San Francisco Ballet family as they honor the dedicated, committed and talented student dancers of the San Francisco Ballet School.
Student Showcase - May 20th & 22nd at 7:30pm; May 21st at 6:00pm
Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater, 700 Howard St., San Francisco
