Widely considered one of the top three ballet companies in America, San Francisco Ballet sets out to prove just why that is with its latest show, "Distinctly SF Ballet". The program brings together three works created specifically for the company, each showing the dancers' exquisite range. Rachmaninov sets the tone for Helgi Tomasson's charmingly romantic neoclassical piece "On a Theme of Paganini". Then, playwright Henrik Ibsen's emotional body of work comes alive in Val Caniparoli's dramatic ballet. Finally, contemporary composer Michael Nyman's minimalist score provides the inspiration for the exhilarating modernism of Myles Thatcher's "Ghost in the Machine". Don't miss what's sure to be a stunning display of the possibilities of movement at the beautiful War Memorial Opera House.
