The event will include a special introduction by Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan of “Kelly and Michael.”
Since its creation by company Artistic Director and Principal Choreographer Helgi Tomasson in 1994, San Francisco Ballet’s “Romeo & Juliet” has played to sold-out houses and taken its place as one of the finest dance interpretations of the passionate tale.
With its passionate choreography, spine-tingling swordsmanship, and celebrated score by Sergei Prokofiev, this colorful and emotional retelling of Shakespeare’s “Romeo & Juliet” has packed houses around the world
Set to an evocative Prokofiev score, the production is filled with beautiful dance, riveting battles and compelling drama, all amid elegant and stunning production and costume designs evoking Renaissance Italy.
Two of the company’s most celebrated principal dancers, Maria Kochetkova and Davit Karapetyan, dance the title roles, joined by the 75-member company that The New York Times called, “a national treasure.”
The performance is scheduled for Thursday, September 24, 2015.
