  1. Casting for Swan Lake is now up. It looks like it will now be an archival performance rather. Swan Lake was last performed during the 2017 Season. https://www.sfballet.org/tickets/casting/ Odette-Odile: Yuan Yuan TanPrince Siegfried: Tiit HelimetsVon Rothbart: Alexander Reneff-OlsonPas de Trois: Dores André, Taras Domitro◊, Sasha De Sola
  2. It's amazing the things you find when you go down the YouTube rabbit hole.... Here is an interview courtesy of National Ballet of Canada. Koto Ishihara, currently First Soloist at NBOC and former Soloist at SFB, is in conversation with Yuan Yuan Tan, SFB Principal Dancer:
  3. Program 5 Change: I noticed it on the website earlier today. For some reason I do not receive all the emails from SFB. It is disappointing Mrs. Robinson could not be filmed - but then again (assuming we are able to attend performances again next year) we will see Mrs. Robinson as it was intended to be seen on the Opera House stage.
  4. The Gala is no longer available -but Midsummer still is available. I did purchase the entire season, so maybe that's why I still have access - for now??? If I understand correctly, the single purchase stream is available for 72 hours once you begin watching.
  5. I was very pleased to see the Sunday matinee performance of Sandpaper Ballet from last season's Program 2 as I also am excited whenever I see Jahna is cast. I was able to see the other casts of Sandpaper Ballet. Jahna did dance in other casts - but this performance that is part of Program 2 is the only performance where she danced the PDD (Trumpeter's Lullaby) with Cavan. The other dancers who danced this PDD were Misa Kuranaga/Esteban Hernandez and Julia Rowe/Joseph Walsh. I actually went to 4 of the 6 1/3 performances - the second performance during the run ended about halfway into the

  8. Nikisha Fogo is now in San Francisco!!! https://www.instagram.com/p/CHGO0Enp5-E/
  9. My guess is it will be a combination. The new works will be created with current social distancing guidelines applied. I have heard some details about one of the pieces, but because it was not in a public forum I will not divulge the info - besides, things are constantly changing that it might be something completely different from the original concept. From the press release (https://cdn.sfballet.org/2019/10/27122047/Digital-Season-Announcement-Final.pdf) one of the mainlines state: New digitally conceived Swan Lake based on Helgi Tomasson’s original choreography, as well as a new film ca

  13. This came across my YouTube page: Trying to find more information on SFBallet.org and will post more information as I find it. I will also search my emails to see if the company has sent any information to subscribers.
  14. (I posted this in the SFB forum since the video began there originally, but am posting here since PNB will now be a part of it) Around the time the pandemic began, SFB premiered a video called Sequentia. One dancer would begin to dance and pass on to another dancer. The new dancer would begin their movement in the pose or movement the previous dancer ended with. After SFB, NYCB picked up where SFB ended. Shortly thereafter, ABT added their moves. Tomorrow at 10 AM PT, PNB will add their moves. Here are links from the SFB FB and YouTube pages: https://www.facebook.com/sfballet/vi
  15. And the baton is passed to - Pacific Northwest Ballet Sequentia continues!!! If you all recall, at the time the pandemic began SFB premiered a video called Sequentia. A dancer would begin to dance and then pass on to the next dancer whose movement would begin with the previous dancers last move. New York City Ballet picked up where SFB left off, and then ABT followed. Up next is Pacific Northwest Ballet. The video will premiere tomorrow at 10 AM PT. I found links on their FB and YouTube pages: https://www.facebook.com/sfballet/videos/350845619702284 YouTube:
