About Classical (Re)Vision
"Classical (Re)Vision" features ballets specifically created for San Francisco Ballet dancers, including Stanton Welch’s updated classicism, Liam Scarlett’s moving drama, and Mark Morris’s quirky cool.
Set to J.S. Bach’s violin concertos, Welch’s "Bespoke" is a neoclassical ode on the brevity of a dance career, created to show off the dancers of SF Ballet and their love for and commitment to the art form. "Hummingbird," Scarlett’s first commission for SF Ballet, showcases this popular young choreographer’s style of blending classical ballet with contemporary drama, and is set to the music of Philip Glass. Morris’ "Sandpaper Ballet," created here in 1999, is a cleverly tongue-in-cheek ballet exemplary of this choreographer’s signature musical sensibility, and set to the music of Leroy Anderson.
