Description

City Ballet of San Diego, under the direction of Steven and Elizabeth Wistrich, ends its 2004-05 season with Balanchine Celebration, four more important works by choreographer George Balanchine.

Continuing the popular and critical success of its Balanchine tribute last year for the choreographer’s centenary, City Ballet will showcase four important Balanchine works: Stars and Stripes (music: John Philip Sousa), Tarantella (music: Louis Gottschalk), Concerto Barocco (music: Johann Sebastian Bach), and Donizetti Variations (music: Gaetano Donizetti). (All programs are subject to change without notice.)

City Ballet Artistic Director Steven Wistrich performed with Balanchine in the 1970s. The company is one of a few around the country given permission by the Balanchine Trust to present the master’s works. Two former New York City Ballet dancers, Leslie Peck and Elyse Borne, were in San Diego in February and March and return in April to stage the works with City Ballet company members.
