Ballet-starved Londoners have flocked to Sadler’s Wells to catch a rare glimpse of Helgi Tómasson’s glorious San Francisco Ballet. The company, making its first visit for eight years, is always lavish in its programming and the 10-day season has offered 10 one-act ballets, nine of them UK premieres.
In Programme A, the 79-year-old troupe began in grand style, with the celestial geometry of George Balanchine’s Divertimento No 15. The 1956 masterpiece – one of my Desert Island ballets – shows us five ballerinas, three cavaliers plus a smiling corps of eight whose vanilla-ice Karinska tutus earned their own ecstatic ovation the instant the curtain rose.

The program was the first this season Verb is presenting largely to highlight the work of one choreographer. For Saturday’s concert, Brown created “Passing By” and tweaked “Continuum,” which he made for Verb last season.
