The San Francisco Ballet presents an exciting amalgam of styles and genres during Program 5 as part of their 2019 repertory season. The program begins with prolific American choreographer Trey McIntyre's 'Your Flesh Shall Be a Great Poem', a kinetic personification of McIntyre's trademark whimsical sweetness and mediative movement set to Americana-tinged tracks from singer-songwriter Chris Garneu's El Radio album.

San Francisco Ballet - Program 6

April 6, 2019

The San Francisco Ballet's kaleidoscopic 2019 Repertory Season continues with the eclectic fusions and fizzing pop culture of Program No. 6. The thrilling adventure of Justin Peck's Rodeo: Four Dance Episodes sets things off to a rousing pace with its abstract and energetic embodiment of Aaron Copland's Americana-infused score. A cast of 15 male dancers and a single female principal deconstruct Agnes de Mille's original Rodeo ballet, challenging ballet's traditional focus on normative feminine and masculine roles with humour and kinetic brilliance.
