SONG OF THE EARTH // SF BALLET PREMIERE
"A man and a woman; death takes the man;
they both return to her and at the end of the ballet, we find that in death there is the promise of renewal." Sir Kenneth MacMillan weaves a story of love, loss, and bittersweet death through poetic choreography set to Mahler.

MARGUERITE AND ARMAND // SF BALLET PREMIERE
Created in 1963 for two of ballet's superstars, Nureyev and Fonteyn, this passionate tale draws inspiration from history's most famous tragic love stories. Of all the ballets that Frederick Ashton created, Marguerite and Armand stands out as his most passionate as it whisks us through their tragic love affair. The lush designs tell a tale of their own, imbuing the ballet in an unforgettable period drama.
