Voice of Dance?s Allan Ulrich also reveled in San Francisco Ballet?s Stern Grove appearance:
?Having returned from its annual holiday a month ago, the S.F. Ballet is gearing up for next month?s tour to the Athens Festival and Sadler?s Wells Theatre in London.
Logically, everything on Sunday?s meaty program – George Balanchine?s Ballo della Regina and The Four Temperaments, Christopher Wheeldon?s Rush and Natalia Makarova?s setting of Marius Petipa?s Paquita, of which we were shown the Pas de Trois – will be included in that tour. As a preview, this was something special. Refreshed from its vacation and with several dancers back after extended injury layoffs (the list includes Sergio Torrado, David Arce and Kristin Long), the company should leave them wanting more abroad.?
