. . . It doesn't say explicitly in the article that these the following ballets from this season will be on Program 7, but the article states they'll be part of next season, and they aren't listed anywhere else: "Petrouchka" (Folkine), "Underskin" (Zanella)


Thanks for this schedule. I don't yet see anything on the SF Ballet web site.
In the article, Petrouchka and Underskin are listed for Program 7:
Program 7: Zanella's "Underskin," Wheeldon world premiere, Fokine's "Petrouchka," April 8, 10*, 13, 14, 16* and eve., 19.

I didn't scroll down far enough, and ended up typing the whole thing out from the article :mad:

Well, I've penciled in second weekend of reps 1-2 and second weekend of reps 3-4. It's a very nice season.

I should see you there for at least one of them, although it will take some moving around. I was hoping that "Giselle" would be a stand-alone, and that 2 and 3 would overlap, but, oh, well.

I'm glad for the overlap - I like getting a fuller picture of SFB as a ballet company; it was enlightening to see Swan Lake and get a sense of how the company did in it. And I love Giselle.

It will be interesting to see it in tandem (I hope) with PNB's Giselle in June.

Here's a link to the on-line color brochure e-mailed to subscribers.

I'm beyond excited about Symphonic Variations, plus Balanchine's Coppelia, plus Winter Dreams, plus Giselle. Looks like a good season.
