Join us for poetry and passion under the stars as San Francisco Ballet returns to Frost Amphitheater with a program of three short ballets that range from romantic to athletic to brilliantly cool. The many facets of love propel the three couples of Jerome Robbins’ romantic In the Night, set to Frédéric Chopin’s dreamy piano nocturnes. In Helgi Tomasson’s 7 for Eight, 7 movements of four Bach concerti and eight impeccable dancers blend elegance and expressivity, poetry and pyrotechnics. William Forsythe’s Blake Works I, set to the 7 songs of James Blake’s album The Colour in Anything starts with the precision of ballet vocabulary, speeds it up, pushes it to the limit of physicality, then refracts it like a kaleidoscope as 30+ dancers are driven by pop music and joy.
