The Joffrey Ballet presents a world premiere online.

Quote

It’ll be the first Joffrey performance since the pandemic, its first foray into online streaming dance, and comes exactly a year after the opening of “The Times Are Racing” in February 2020 at the Auditorium Theatre. Choreographed by Joffrey artist Yoshihisa Arai, “Boléro” is a 16-minute work named after, and inspired by, the popular 1928 orchestral piece by French composer Maurice Ravel.

In 2021, the SF Ballet headquarters on Franklin Street is nothing like the beehive of activity that it had been since 1984 when it opened as the country’s first building designed and constructed exclusively for the use of a major ballet company.

A review of SFB's online gala by Paul Parish for The Bay Area Reporter.

Quote

Helgi Tomasson's new ballet, "Harmony," is set to a baroque dance suite by Rameau, from Louis XIV's era, but it looked as fresh as a costume drama on Netflix —with fanciful 18th-century waistcoats and matching hot pants— as the dancers tore it up.

Then came Lucas Erni, with a variation that included a startling tour jeté, landed in the wrong place, but it's right. And just in case you could not believe your eyes, he does it again. We saw an excerpt of that. I'm eager to see the whole thing. Even in flat-on video-capture, it's exhilarating, one of those ballets where you just go along for the ride.
