  1. Ballet Shop now online!! As a volunteer, I worked in the gift shop for Saturday evening performances. This is one of the things I miss with COVID-19. All proceeds from the shop go back to San Francisco Ballet. But now, the shop is online!! Here is the link: https://shop.sfballet.org/. There was also an announcement on FB: I hope that you will consider visiting the shop online.

  5. As a proud ballet volunteer, I received an email with the announcement that there will be no live Nutcracker performances this year. The reason is the San Francisco War memorial and Performing Arts Center has decided to keep its venues closed for pubic performances through December 31, 2020.

  10. Initial thoughts: Only 7 programs instead of the usual 8. Excited that most of the cancelled programs will be returning next year. The only ones not coming back are Millepied's Appassionata & Possokhov's Classical Symphony - but his Swimmer makes a most welcome return in Program 1. Interesting that all the full-lengths will be in the second half of the season. Also, no performances in April and most of May. Perhaps to rehearse the last two programs (Swan Lake & Romeo & Juliet)? Although I am happy to see Swan Lake again, it has been years since we've

  12. Actually, Sarah Lamb and Alexander Campbell dance the PDD originated by Maria Kochetkova and Joan Boada. I saw the Royal Ballet filmed performance in the theatre last year. The program included a piece by Crystal Pite. I forget the other choreographer, but it was a new creation which was in the second part. New costumes were created for the piece when it premiered on the Royal. Here is the PDD danced by Sarah Lamb & Alexander Campbell: This is a clip from SFB with a part of the opening section, a part of the PDD danced by Sarah Van Patten and Pierre Francoi
