A review of San Francisco Ballet's virtual gala by Janice Berman for San Francisco Classical Voice.


Yuri Possokhov’s Dedicated To ... set to a composition by Victor Osadchev, is a gem of a solo for Yuan Yuan Tan, still the perfect ballerina in imperfect times. Possokhov cast her adrift, writhing in anguish on the floor reaching toward the wings. Upstage, a woman in an austere jacket sat motionless on a stony throne. Without a story, it conveyed a sense of loss, despair, perhaps guilt, directed both inward and toward the older woman. Nobody said it was the ballerina’s mother, but it clearly was. And it actually was Yuan Yuan Tan’s mother, Su Zhang, who at last moved toward the daughter in a moment of love and forgiveness reminiscent of George Balanchine’s The Prodigal Son.
