Are you fascinated about the choreography of ballet, the gracefulness of the dancers, and the entrancing orchestra? Take a sneak peek into the San Francisco Ballet Premiere of Suite en Blanc, In the Night, and Borderlands. You will enjoy the beautifully crafted choreography, the lights and costumes, and most of all the elegance and precision of these talented, professional ballet dancers.
If you have not watched ballet in your life you are surely missing out. Seeing the live performances of these professional ballet dancers is magnificent. The show on stage is much better than watching the show on television. The costumes are beautiful and the sight of the graceful dancers live on stage makes the show quite pleasant.
Suite the Blanc is a fresh dance choreographed by Serge Lifar who made his debut at the Ballets Russes in 1923. It is composed by the French composer Edouard Lalo and the talented Maina Gielgud. Suite the Blanc is rarely performed in the United States so having a chance to view it in the SF ballet is a treat. The array of dancers dressed in white tutus makes the performance stunningly beautiful and spectacular. Lifar is linked to the infamous Serge Diaghilev’s Ballet Russes who too rarely performed in the United States. Diaghilev is renowned for his sex appeal and so this play which is linked to him becomes fun and delightful.
In the Night, the second performance is quite charming. Greatly contrasting the first that shines in brightness and elegance, the second’s shines in the brilliant night sky or dim lightings. Once again the dancers outshine in their beautiful costumes. This performance has three set of dancers dancing out their love stories. It is beautiful, romantic, and definitely quite enjoyable. One will be able to link it to different love stories through times in the classical movies and perhaps even imagine that you are the characters. Enjoy this ballroom style dance in the performance of In the Night in the SF Ballet.
Borderland is a modern twist of Ballet dancing. The performers and dancers are dressed in basic simple spandex clothing which blends with the modern science setting and the music is also very techno. The dancers’ movements are rapid and with yoga-like flexibility. Speculators will have a feeling of half modern world and half futuristic mixed with alien, outer-space feel.
Enjoy these three exquisitely choreographed and performed ballets at the SF ballet.
