San Francisco Ballet has announced its 2005-2006 season. We?ll see the three new works?one each by Paul Taylor, Lar Lubovitch, and Christopher Wheeldon?scheduled to premiere in Paris this summer. Among the other bits I?m most jazzed about: the company premiere of Jerome Robbins’s ?Afternoon of a Faun? (as part of an all-Robbins program); the return of Balanchine?s ?Apollo,? in which Gonzalo Garcia is every inch the dashing deity; and the company premiere of William Forsythe?s ?Pas/Parts.? The other Balanchine works on tap are ?Who Cares?? and ?Allegro Brillante;? Mark Morris?s three-act ?Sylvia,? about which I have mixed feelings, and Tomasson?s own ?Swan Lake? will also return.
