Why See San Francisco Ballet - Shostakovich Trilogy?
Back for 2019
San Francisco Ballet revives Alexei Ratmansky's 'masterpiece' work, the Shostakovich Trilogy. Described as "fascinating, poetic, enigmatic and bittersweet" by The New York Times, the production was originally performed by the American Ballet Theatre and premiered in San Francisco in 2014, where it won rave reviews from critics and audiences alike.
Comprising of three unique and ravishing ballets sets to Shostakovich's Symphony #9, Chamber Symphony, and Piano Concerto #1, the trilogy is non narrative yet no less impactful, lyrically weaving the scores to the composer's own life and experiences in Soviet Russia where themes of rebellion, oppression and expression are explored with 'enduring genius' by Ratmansky.
