San Francisco, CA -- SF Ballet has outdone itself with its portrayal of Beaux utilizing the artistry of famed Choreographer Mark Morris in this modern take that incorporates the music of Bohuslav Martinu. Bringing flair of the un-conservative famed Fashion Designer Isaac Mizrahi incorporates his unique style in the design of not only the costumes but also the Scenic Design in this fascinating piece. Though the costumes leave little to the imagination they work very well with the piece showing a flow and symmetry that moves with the dancers. Though Mizrahi has created costumes for 3 Broadway revivals including two plays this is his first foray into the world of Ballet.
Strangely enough you'll wonder what that unusual instrument sound is but its Mark Morris' use within the piece of the revival harpsichord. This big and clunky instrument brings a sound that is unique to the piece and makes you think twice about what a harpsichord should sound like.
Mark Morris whose own dance company Mark Morris Dance Group developed in 1980 can often be seen around the SF Bay Area performing his own personalized pieces when he is not working with other dance outlets around the world.
If you love a piece that gives the male dancers the opportunity to step outside of their typical ballet dance box, yes men partnering with men but in a way that tells a story that gives another view of the world of ballet.
The other two pieces that are being performed "The Rite of Spring" and "Guide to Strange Places" show a diversity that the SF Ballet has in its repertoire by bringing the classical to the contemporary to the pieces.
Program 3 runs from February 26th till March 10th. Tickets and information can be found at:
