San Francisco Ballet's Cross-Cross, Francesca da Rimini, Symphony in Three Movements

San Francisco BalletProgram Seven features Helgi Tomasson's Criss-Cross, last seen by San Francisco Ballet audiences in 1999, and set to a two-part musical score -- Charles Avison's reworking of twelve Scarlatti sonatas for harpsichord and a Handel-influenced Schoenberg concerto. The program continues with the return of Possokhov's gripping Francesca da Rimini, set to Tchaikovsky's music and based on Dante's Inferno, and concludes with Balanchine's iconic Symphony in Three Movements. Having made its SF Ballet premiere in 2000 and set to Stravinsky's score of the same title, Balanchine's large scale ballet has since become one of the company's signature works, thrilling audiences both at home and around the world.
