In celebraton of the ballet’s 90th anniversary, this festival presents nine world premiere ballets by nine international choreographers. Val Caniparoli, celebrating his 50th anniversary with the company this year, has created a beautiful and stunning ballet in Emergence, set to Dobrinka Tabakova’s Concerto for Cello and Strings. Bridget Breiner of Staatsballett Karlsruhe has based her ballet, The Queen’s Daughter, on the biblical story of Salome. It features a Greek chorus in the cast of 13, and is set to Benjamin Britten’s only violin concerto. Yuka Oishi, in her U.S. and S.F. Ballet debut has created an energetic ballet, Bolero, with themes of life and death set to Maurice Ravel’s iconic and compelling score. Two additional programs are performed in repertory: Robert Garland’s Haffner Serenade, Jamar Roberts’s Resurrection, and Danielle Rowe’s MADCAP; and Nicolas Blanc’s Gateway to the Sun, Claudia Schreier’s Kin, and Yuri Possokhov’s Violin Concerto.
