Ballet in Sun Valley

Updated: Feb 14, 2019

The San Francisco Ballet will once again bring the renowned company to town for its annual festival at the Sun Valley Pavilion next summer. The SFB performed at the inaugural BSV Festival in 2012, and its top-notch dancers and staff have been regular guests ever since.

"Bob Smelick, who is the person who founded Ballet Sun Valley, has been on the board of the San Francisco Ballet for a long time, so his relationship with with [it] started that way," said BSV representative Shannon Atlas. "He also has a long-term relationship with the Sun Valley community as a resident there."

The 2019 ballet festival includes two performances from the SFB under the guidance of Artistic Director Helgi Tomasson: a gala-style production and set of short dances (Friday, July 5) and a longer, mixed-repertory performance of three different works (Sunday, July 7).
