Description

SF Ballet is thrilled to welcome The Hamburg Ballet to the Opera House stage in Nijinsky, John Neumeier’s dance theater epic based on the tumultuous life of dancer Vaslav Nijinsky. Performed by the acclaimed The Hamburg Ballet, for whom Neumeier has served as Artistic Director since 1973, Nijinsky has captivated dance lovers worldwide since its debut in 2000. Hailed as “darkly triumphant” by the L.A. Times, Nijinsky features scenery, lighting, and costumes by Neumeier, whose work also includes the SF Ballet sensation, The Little Mermaid, which made its national broadcast debut on PBS Great Performances in 2011.

_* San Francisco Ballet recommends that children be at least 8 years old to attend Repertory season performances.
