  9. He has actually already performed Prince Desire. His Princess Aurora was Natasha Sheehan. In this link to the cover story you can scroll down and see a picture of them from last year's student matinee: https://www.pointemagazine.com/natasha-sheehan-ballet-2627550597.html?utm_campaign=RebelMouse&socialux=facebook&share_id=4356430&utm_medium=social&utm_content=Pointe&utm_source=facebook&fbclid=IwAR281Tv_uHrVxbKDgt1_fLm0S-5A-NHxnW2SD2cLBrDXVxrklYQJJ-vrstU.

  11. Sensorium is returning after a one year hiatus: https://www.sfballet.org/sensorium. No program details posted yet, but will update once available.
  12. Thanks for posting the KTVU piece. Madison had an IG post about it (https://www.instagram.com/p/BtQMn2PhGoB/) and I was going to try to search for it. I agree she is a good speaker. During last year's Unbound Festival there was a panel discussion at SFMOMA. She was part of the panel with Sofiane Sylve and James Sofranko, and the moderators were beloved former SFB dancers Muriel Maffre and Pascal Molat. I was impressed with Madison as I thought she gave very thoughtful responses and projected well, very well composed.
  13. When did that change happen? Yesterday I listened to the Podcast 'To The Pointe' via iTunes which included discussion about Anima Animus, but now I see the Podcast has been updated on the SFB website: https://sfballet.blog/2019/01/28/to-the-pointe-kaleidoscope/. I will have to check out iTunes again and see if it has been updated. I am not going to guess the reason for the change, but I do hope Anima Animus will return next season.
  14. If you haven't seen Don Q yet and you're trying to decide which one to go see, I highly suggest going Saturday afternoon to see Wona Park and Joseph Walsh. They delivered and then some. I was happy to Joe's return to the stage. Wona - what can I say?? There are not enough words and I don't want to use the normal cliches (a star is born) - even if it's true. But from her first entrance in Act 1 all the way through the end she grabbed your attention and did not let go. A perfect combination of technical prowess, acting, and characterization. Plus, the chemistry between the two was the best IMHO. I will just add: I can't wait to see what she does next. I'll try to post more later, but two additional things: 1) I have seen all four principal couples so far and I think they all did a fine job - but if I didn't mention it before you should go see Wona & Joe; 2) I also want to heap lots of praise on Don Q (Nathaniel Remez), Sancho Panza (Davide Occhipinti), and Gamache (Alexandre Cagnat). I remember when they were Trainees, joined the company as Apprentices, and are now in their second year in the Corps. They were alI wonderful in their roles and I noticed little things with each one (Gamache entering the Gypsy Camp in Act 2 sitting on the horse backwards, Sancho Panza dancing on the side in Act 1 with the three couples center stage, Don Q in the Act 2 dream sequence). I think with the three of them and Wona (along with the rest of the company), the future of SFB is really bright!!!
