San Francisco Ballet Has Extensive Touring Schedule, Summer, Fall, 2012

22 Mar

San Francisco Ballet usually tours once or twice a year and usually in the fall.  It has made tours to England, France, Italy and Spain in the late summer, and, much earlier, ventured over the Pacific to Japan, and, as I recall, to Singapore.

This summer of 2012, it will appear in Hamburg, Germany, June 26-27;  Moscow at the Bolshoi Theatre, June 29-30;  come September to London’s Sadler’s Wells Theatre.  In November, the company will appear at Kennedy Center in the Tomasson version of Sergei Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet and one mixed repertory program.

The company will also venture to Sun Valley, Idaho for a one-night stand July 8, obviously after the dancers have regained their equilibrium following their return from Moscow.

The mixed repertory selections have yet to be announced, particularly for Moscow and  Washington, D.C.

In Hamburg, however, the program will include 7 for Eight by Helgi Tomasson; RAkU by Yuri Possokhov, A pas de deux from Continuum and Within the Golden Hour, both by Christopher Wheeldon. Yuan Yuan Tan, Tiit Helimets, Davit Karapetyan and Sarah Van Patten are scheduled to appear June 22 in John Neumeier’s The Little Mermaid with the Hamburg Ballet cast.  July 1 several dancers will appear in the Nijinsky Gala XXXVIII.

The London tour is scheduled September 14-23, nine performances with three mixed repertory programs.  Works by George Balanchine, Mark Morris, Christopher Wheeldon, Yuri Possokhov and Helgi Tomasson will comprise the selections.
