"This is a ballet that moves far beyond the elegance and romanticism traditionally associated with ballet, embracing instead a new dance vocabulary that celebrates androgyny of a very different sort while it rejects established geometry for a sort of explosive random pattern that is never anything short of compelling." - Toronto Sun
San Francisco Ballet
April 7 to April 20, 2011
Making its debut to San Francisco Ballet Wayne McGregor's Chroma is one that I am particularly excited about. Set to music by Jack White of the White Stripes this contemporary piece is making waves for modern ballet. Chroma is included in Program 6 along with Wheeldon's Ghosts and Tomasson's 7 for Eight .
Tip: Chroma opens the same night as Thursdays at the Ballet. This $69 ticket will also include a post-performance reception for young professionals with cocktails provided by Tres Agaves.
