City Ballet's season closer not only brings the beautiful Act II of Swan Lake to the stage for Mother's Day weekend, but also presents the world premiere of resident choreographer Elizabeth Rowe Wistrich's work set to Mozart's "Requiem," featuring the acclaimed dance company, a 100-voice chorus, vocal soloists and the live City Ballet Orchestra. This spectacular new piece forgoes a literal staging of the text, for a more powerful movement-based interpretation of the emotions in each of its 12 sections. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
City Ballet of San Diego, under the direction of Steven and Elizabeth Wistrich, closes its acclaimed 14th season by cementing its role as the sole local presenter of works by the legendary choreographer George Balanchine with “Balanchine.”
As a company, City Ballet has a strong connection with Balanchine. Artistic Director Steven Wistrich performed with “Mr. B” in the 1970s, and the company is one of a few around the country given permission by The Balanchine Trust to present the master’s works. Former New York City Ballet dancers Sandra Jennings and Leslie Peck will be in San Diego to stage the works with City Ballet company members.
