SF Ballet: Dancin’ In The Rain

The San Francisco Ballet ran into some bad luck on its European tour, courtesy of Mother Nature. Cold, rainy weather cancelled two performances in the first week alone, and the opening night, before an audience of ultra-knowledgable Parisians including the wife of President Jacques Chirac, was very nearly rained out. Still, the tour has by all accounts been a success, and French audiences have been very receptive to the company’s traditional approach to dance, despite the unpopularity of the cancellations.
