S.F.'S BALLET LEAPS FORWARD

Michael Harris
SF Chronicle

By now, the San Francisco Ballet, which celebrated its 50th anniversary two years ago, has a $9 million budget and is able to let its major dancers and officers live in some comfort. <a href=http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2005/01/23/PKGAB986IO1.DTL target=_blank>more</a>

And speaking of Paris and the Ballet, the company will make another trip to the City of Light this summer to inaugurate a new festival of dance, Les Etes de la Danse de Paris.

SFB is very fortunate to be gaining the fulltime services of Rico Chiarelli as resident lighting designer. While it is a loss for PNB, certainly, now is probably a good time for him to make a move.

When not airborne, Gonzalo Garcia's very down to earth about ballet, fame
Jane Ganahl

Friday, February 18, 2005

Where admiration of Garcia's drama and artistry is difficult to avoid, so is admiration of Garcia as a specimen. With bulging biceps and no body fat -- as well as long eyelashes and naturally pouting lips -- the 25-year-old Spaniard is a matinee idol waiting to happen; perhaps a cross between Gael Garcia Bernal and Brad Pitt. A female observer of the rehearsal in progress whispers: "This boy could be a movie star."

But Garcia has more important things to worry about right now: his first time dancing the role of Prince Albrecht, the romantic lead in "Giselle," which opens Saturday. It's a huge break for the young dancer, and he has only 10 days to learn the entire role.

The caption for one of the photos says, "Gonzalo Garcia takes a break amid rigorous rehearsal for 'Giselle' with the San Francisco Ballet." He appears to be spending his break at Giselle's grave.

A classic situation with a paper assigning an editor to an article who has no idea what they're looking at... Like I said before, without quality editors, the Chronicle is becoming more and more of a joke...

Helgi Tomasson's 20th year at the helm of the San Francisco Ballet is shaping up to be a year of celebrations. On Sunday, the company won a big- deal Olivier Award in London for outstanding achievement in dance for the company's September performances at the Sadler's Wells.

Lorena Feijoo followed mom's pointe steps and soared on her own. Now the two are reunited.
Rachel Howard, Special to The Chronicle

Monday, March 21, 2005

"I insisted I wanted to be a ballerina," Lorena Feijoo remembers during a rehearsal break at San Francisco Ballet. She is clasping the hand of the woman next to her. Same tawny skin, same commanding brown eyes, same proud carriage: Lorena Feijoo and Lupe Calzadilla look like Russian nesting dolls, one a smaller copy of the other. Feijoo wears a red leotard and a smudge of lipstick where her mother has just kissed her cheek; mama has borrowed her daughter's red shawl and draped it across her shoulders with theatrical elan. "How old was I when I said that, madre?"

"Dos años!" Calzadilla shouts, with her hand in the air.

"Two years old," Feijoo says. "My God. I didn't even know this."

WHEN DIABLO BALLET performs Val Caniparoli's spicy, Latin-flavored "Aquilarco" tonight in Walnut Creek, it will undoubtedly conjure nostalgic memories for many Bay Area ballet fans. <a href=http://www.contracostatimes.com/mld/cctimes/entertainment/11227533.htm target=_blank>more</a>

San Francisco Ballet is cancelling its appearance at Stern Grove for 2005. The company was scheduled to open the newly renovated Concert Meadow for its inaugural weekend on June 19, 2005. David Wiegand reports in the San Francisco Chronicle:
