Here's the program; no casts yet (Stern Grove website).

 

 

From Foreign Lands (Choreographer: Alexei Ratmansky)
Stone and Steel (Choreographer: Myles Thatcher)
Distant Cries (Choreographer: Edwaard Liang)
Suite en Blanc (Choreographer: Serge Lifar)

 
Myles Thatcher is a member of SFB's corp de ballet, and, by many accounts, a budding choreographer with real potential.

I was talking about outdoor performances with some colleagues yesterday, and we were wondering how often SFB's Stern Grove shows had to deal with truly cold weather?

Well, I believe it was Mark Twain who said, "The coldest winter I ever spent was summer in San Francisco." And that area can be foggy. Plus, of course, 'cold' to dancers is different from 'cold' for the rest of us. The audience can put on sweaters or huddle under blankets. Dancers are out there in skimpy costumes, for which they have my sincerest sympathy!

We tend to have cycles: warm/hot for a few days, then in comes the fog and it's chilly. It's chilly right now, but seems to be warming up, so hope for the best by the weekend.

Oh, I love the 1952 photo -- and the contrast with the contemporary audience.

Nice review, Paul. It was great to hear some details about the Thatcher ballet.

 

[EDIT] I'm guessing that Messmer and Froustey did not make an appearance at Stern, or was there a suprise appearance?
