Crimes of the Heart
Three hard-luck Mississippi sisters are betrayed by their passions in this Southern Gothic classic—a zany, warm-hearted, and brilliantly imaginative tale of relationships run amok and dreams gone awry.

San Francisco Ballet 2017 Program 1-2
Program 1 is quite simply a celebration. The New York Times called Helgi Tomasson’s Haffner Symphony “sublime—as festive as it is an embodiment of beauty.” Next, experience Fragile Vessels, a new work by Jiří Bubeníček. Closing the program is Justin Peck’s In the Countenance of Kings. This bold new work set to a glorious score by indie crossover artist Sufjan Stevens, was the surprise smash success of the 2016 Repertory Season. Program 2 features the purity and delicacy of Ratmansky’s Seven Sonatas, the world premiere of Yuri Possokhov’s emotionally intense Optimistic Tragedy, and William Forsythe’s pulsating Pas/Parts 2016. Set to Scarlatti, Seven Sonatas is a neoclassical ballet The Washington Post hailed for “its extreme musical sensitivity.” Be the first to see Optimistic Tragedy, a world premiere by Choreographer in Residence Yuri Possokhov, whose Swimmer was the undisputed hit of the 2015 season. And finally, William Forsythe’s astounding Pas/Parts 2016.
