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.
