Why See San Francisco Ballet: Frankenstein?

The celebrated ballet by Liam Scarlett touches down in 2017

The Royal Ballet's Liam Scarlett brings his celebrated production of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein back to San Francisco in 2017! One of the most promising new choreographers of the new millennium, Scarlett's works have been lauded for its psychological complexities and expressive movement in dance. His first full-length ballet brings to life the troubled Dr. Frankenstein and his equally tragic Creature, exploring man's desire to create and moving away from its "horror" label.

The original story of Frankenstein has mostly been forgotten with the advent of Hammer Horror movies, and now the Creature is a staple of pop culture, even laughable with his flat top haircut and neck bolts. However, Scarlett's rich and evocative production turns down the horror angle, and transforms it into a Gothic love story with a tragic end worthy of opera, with an emphasis on exploring what it means to be human.
