Thanks a lot Diana. That's the first information I have seen about the SFB visit to Sadler's. Can't wait!

Oooh, I am excited to see what Londoners think of Possokhov's "Study in Motion." This could bring him much more recognition.

I am certainly looking forward to this new work from Possokhov, Belinda. Most of us Brits enjoyed "Magrittomania" when they were here in 2001.

"Study in Motion," a work focused on pure movement, is quite different from "Magrittomania" and its props. I enjoyed both very much for very different reasons, such is the choreographic skill of Yuri Possokhov. Both of Tomasson's pieces should also go over very well in London.

I have to say, after Stern Grove, Londoners are in for a treat. The company is dancing better than ever!

A giant leap for a young star

By CHARLOTTE CRIPPS
The Independent
September 1, 2004

The young ballerina Nutnaree Pipithsuksunt, 18, wants to be a big star. She is already San Francisco Ballet's latest recruit and youngest soloist (she bypassed the corps de ballet). She is to perform in the company's London season at Sadler's Wells, making her professional debut by dancing in two pieces - Helgi Tomasson's 7 for eight (2004) and George Balanchine's The Four Temperaments (1946).

Looking forward to this visit more than somewhat. Highlights for me will be some unfamiliar Balanchine, Ratmansky's "Le Carnaval des Animaux", Possokhov's "Study in Motion" and Wheeldon's "Rush©". Actually that's most of the programme, which shows just how promising it looks.

What are others looking forward to?

Since I'll be here in the US, I can only look forward to reading reactions to the pieces I liked in the company's season in San Francisco, especially "Study in Motion" and "Seven for Eight." I'm also wondering whether UK audiences will be as impressed by the quality of the men in "Concerto Grosso" as San Francisco audiences obviously were.

I can wait to see the Cie perfoming. It's good that they are doing diverse ballets... Last season I saw San Fransisco Ballet's production of Don Q. and it was a very strange show, with ugly set and costumes. It did not find the perfomance good at all...
I hope that I will not be dsappointed this time !

Are you coming to London for the performances next week, Arsen?

I felt the same way when I pasted the Chronicle piece, Arsen. I confess I don't see SF Ballet very much in my hometown. The romance of seeing this company in London is alluring though.

I cannot wait for the SFB season at Sadler's Wells to start. 3 years have been a long wait since their successful residency at the ROH.
When I first saw this year's programme I felt like a child let loose in a sweet shop.

It will be great to see some Balanchine that is not normally performed in Europe. I have to confess I had not even heard of Ballo Della Regina and Allegro Brilliante. I am also looking forward to the Wheeldon pieces, Carneval des Animaux by Ratmansky and Possokhov's Study in Motion. Tempting gems on offer where ever you look. It seems as if we are in for another week of pure ballet bliss. We are really lucky here in London.

OdileGB, perhaps this time we can persuade them to stay?
