Looking at the dates, I wonder how this impacts or if it will impact the Stern Grove performance. They are scheduled to perform on Sunday 7/28. The festival in Paris is 7/8-7/26. Guess we'll have to wait to see the actual performance dates for Paris.

Catching the red-eye back to SF on the 26th? Ah, the touring life - yuck. But an exciting exhibition of dance, to be sure.

My guess is that the works shown will be many of the same ones to be performed in NY at State Theatre.

Hope they are as warmly received as MCB a few years ago. They deserve it.

I think you've misread the date: SFB is going to Paris next year, 2014. So it's likely this year's Stern Grove performance won't be suffering from jet lag!

Thanks for pointing out it's next year - I only saw the July part.

Maybe I should start planning that trip to Paris....

Yes indeed - now I can start dreaming about a trip to Paris!
Maybe, just maybe.

Looks like quite a program, really. Wish they would dance that program here on the West Coast.

Good Lord! Just t o see Maelstrom again --i have SUCH vivid memories of that , I LONG to see that again.

 

And Ratmansky's Piano Concerto? 

 

It's all stuff they dance well; one could carp and wish they'd do Concerto barocco [which I could see every day and never get tired of saying I don't get to see it enough], but then I could wish I were a rich man and hop over to Paris to see it. If I could I sure would. It's a wonderfully varied program.

I wonder if that's part of the Shostakovich evening-length.
