Ferry riders headed for the South Bay are encouraged to explore an “under the stars” event, as San Francisco Ballet returns to Frost Amphitheater at Stanford University on August 5–6 with a program of three short ballets.
The program thrills with audience favorites—three short ballets that range from the romantic to athletic and brilliantly cool. Members of the Grammy Award–winning San Francisco Ballet Orchestra will play J.S. Bach’s music for 7 for Eight and Chopin nocturnes for In the Night, while Blake Works I is danced to the sultry sounds of James Blake’s 2016 album The Colour in Anything.
The program for each night:
7 FOR EIGHT
Choreographer: Helgi Tomasson
Composer: Johann Sebastian Bach
IN THE NIGHT
