San Francisco Ballet continues its Spring 2013 season with two evenings that each feature a mixed bill of three different ballets. Program 6 includes Rudolf Nureyev's sparkling Raymonda Act III
, one of the most celebrated pieces of choreography in all of classical ballet, and Val Caniparoli's Ibsen's House
. This dramatic tour-de-force was inspired by revolutionary Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen, whose works radically challenged Victorian ideals about the place of women in society. Program 6 also includes Edwaard Liang's Symphonic Dances
. Set to the music of Rachmaninov, Liang's new work bubbles over with wild, youthful energy that has won over audiences and critics alike. Program 7 features Helgi Tomasson's Criss-Cross
, in its first Bay Area performance in over a decade. The program continues with the return of Possokhov's gripping Francesca da Rimini
, set to Tchaikovsky's music and based on Dante's Inferno
. The performance concludes with Balanchine's iconic Symphony in Three Movements
, set to Stravinsky's score of the same title. Balanchine's large scale ballet has become one of the Company's signature works, thrilling audiences both at home and around the world.
