Here's an interview with SFB's Val Caniparoli and a preview of SFB's 2001 season:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Drawn to the Lights<BR>'Moth' choreographer Val Caniparoli finds his muses in San Francisco</B><P>Octavio Roca, SF Chronicle<P>Val Caniparoli knows what he wants. <P>"A ballet needs a viewpoint," he said, "and so do I. <P>"Even when I have done abstract works, and these are my least successful, there is always something going on, a character to develop, a story to tell.

For a discussion on the gala (and news and gossip), go to the <B><a href=../../../ubb/Forum4/HTML/000634.html>SF Ballet Gala 1/24/01 thread</a></B>.<p>[This message has been edited by Azlan (edited January 21, 2001).]

Azlan, do you know anything about Chris Stowell's post-SFB plans?

I realized that some of the SFB news that I posted in the gala thread would be better here:<P>- Hans van Manen will himself be attending the gala to take in the SFB premiere of his "Black Cake."<P>- It seems spring is the theme for new works. "A Garden" is the title of Mark Morris' new work for SFB in late February while Val Caniparoli's premire in early February will be called "Death of a Moth."<P>- Christopher Stowell will be retiring at the end of this season but Tiekka Schofield, formerly of Houston Ballet and Royal Scottish Ballet, joined as Soloist last week.<P>- Finally, the now famous SFB School has embarked on an audition tour that will take them to 15 cities in the US.<P><BR>I have an idea of what Stowell might be doing post-dancing, Francis, but perhaps it's best we solicit a response from the man himself or from the ballet company.

Yet more news from SFB.<P>SFB has announced the dates for their very popular "Casual Fridays," where for a mere $39, you get light hors d'ouvres, wine, a live talk/interview, and an Orchestra or Dress Circle seat. The "Casual Fridays" this season are Feb 9, Mar 2, and Apr 20.<P>Call the Ballet Box Office at 415-865-2000 for tickets.<p>[This message has been edited by Azlan (edited January 20, 2001).]

A nice article on AD Helgi Tomasson:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Youth and Beauty</B><BR>Innovation is alive and well in Helgi Tomasson's S.F. Ballet <P>By Ann Murphy, SF Weekly<P>Twyla Tharp started it 28 years ago when she blasted the Beach Boys' "Little Deuce Coupe" through New York's City Center. Onstage, while Brian Wilson's voice whined sweetly, Tharp's pop spectacle by the Joffrey Ballet got under way. A tall and leggy ballerina performed regal promenades, turning coolly in space, while other dancers raced around her, performing jelly rolls and doing the frug. The contrast was as radical as talking sex in church.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><B><A HREF="http://www.sfweekly.com/issues/2001-01-24/dance.html" TARGET=_blank>More</A></B>

Any word on how things are going with Bruce Sansom's one-year residency?

Francis, I have yet to hear about Bruce Sansom's tenure. However, a very nice friend at SFB has informed me that Christopher Stowell intends to "travel, teach and, most of all, work with opera companies (he loves opera) to teach them movement which is sometimes necessary."<P>Not surprising then that his most recent work, for <A HREF=../../../ubb/Forum4/HTML/000554.html>Diablo Ballet's Thanksgiving show</A>, heavily featured an operatic format.

Having trouble deciding which program to catch in SFB's upcoming season? Well, here are some guidelines from a trusted source:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>S. F. Ballet: Something for everyone</B><P>By Rachel Howard, SF Examiner<P>Longtime balletomanes develop "the eye": the ability to look over people who don't have the time or inclination to obsess over ballet, and gauge what might appeal to them. Their recommendations are based on factors ranging from the obvious to the subtle -- age, prior experience, fashion sensibility -- and they aren't always spot on. Nevertheless, if you like ballet but can only attend a handful of San Francisco Ballet's eight 2001 programs, or if you haven't yet experienced top-drawer classical dance and want to take a chance on one program, read on for some subjective guesses as to which programs will appeal to whom. And if you're a dance lover skilled at this recommendation game, feel free to differ.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><B><A HREF="http://63.78.169.150/style/default.jsp?story=x0124ballet" TARGET=_blank>More</A></B>

Image <BR>Gonzalo Garcia, who will be featured prominently this season, catches the eye of our Rachel Howard:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Garcia is on his toes</B><P>By Rachel Howard, SF Examiner<P>It's just two days since Gonzalo Garcia returned from a visit to his hometown in Spain, and the Prodigal Son is weighing heavily on his mind. It's not that his life has paralleled the story: Though Garcia's tattered tangerine practice sweats might make a fitting costume for the Son's final crawl home, his softly lashed eyes look incapable of debauchery.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><B><A HREF="http://63.78.169.150/style/default.jsp?story=x0124dancer" TARGET=_blank>More</A></B>

Thanks for the word on Chris Stowell, Azlan. I'd be very interested in any word on how the experiment is working with Mr. Sansom. Cheers.
