SF Ballet: Program 2

Mark Morris’ Drink to Me Only With Thine Eyes, is a work the New York Times called, “rich and complex—a ballet that keeps the eye and mind alert.” Next is Fearful Symmetries, a brand new work by young ballet wunderkind Liam Scarlett whose first piece for SF Ballet, Hummingbird, was both a critical success and an audience favorite. Set to a driving, jazzy score by Igor Stravinsky, “Rubies”, typically the second work in Balanchine’s three-act abstract ballet, Jewels, sparkles. By turns athletic, passionate, and humorous, the choreography is an homage to the composer—Balanchine’s life-long friend and muse.
