"San Francisco Ballet in China"
It has been five years since I last saw the San Francisco Ballet during their memorable season at the Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London in 2004. So I was glad to catch the company again on their current tour to Shanghai and Beijing in China.

I'm delighted that SFB have had such a successful tour of China and it was good to read Kevin Ng's review. Orchestras have proved problematic for a number of companies and I remember that the royal Ballet sufferred in this respect a few years ago.

Hope SFB return to the UK before too long, with their great dancers and their fascinating rep.

It's probably time to form a 2010 season thread, but until then...

"San Francisco Ballet announced today the promotion of Frances Chung from the rank of soloist to principal dancer, effective immediately. Born in Vancouver, Chung trained at the Goh Ballet Academy before joining the Company in 2001. She was promoted to soloist in 2005 and has danced a diverse range of roles including the Sugar Plum Fairy, Grand Pas de Deux Ballerina, and Snow Queen in Tomasson’s Nutcracker; the Enchanted Princess in Tomasson’s The Sleeping Beauty; Neapolitan, Russian Princess, and pas de trois in Tomasson’s Swan Lake; and the Queen of the Dryads in Tomasson/Possokhov’s Don Quixote. Her repertory also includes lead roles in Balanchine’s Symphony in C, Divertimento No. 15, and “Emeralds”; Bintley’s The Dance House; Elo’s Double Evil; Forsythe’s in the middle, somewhat elevated; Lubovitch's “…smile with my heart” and Elemental Brubeck; Makarova’s Paquita; Possokhov’s Fusion; and Welch’s Naked. Among other honors, Chung was a finalist and prize winner at the Prix de Lausanne in 2000 and received the top honor of a silver medal at the Adeline Genée Awards in London that same year."
