* Your checklist for ballets, companies, performers, experiences that every ballet lover should enjoy at least once in their life.

What the critics say:
"The repertoire relies heavily on San Francisco Ballet’s principals to carry almost every ballet, and in Paris they showed themselves to be one of the strongest, most versatile groups in the world. The men Tomasson has nurtured are uniformly outstanding; the women, meanwhile, are all intriguingly individual, from Chung’s minute precision to the quirky versatility of Maria Kochetkova.... Where ballet goes from here is anyone’s guess, but as dancers and choreographers continue to flock to Tomasson, the tell-tale signs may well be found in California.
"

If you are even tentatively interested in this trip, it is very important that you email me to let me know. This does not commit you to anything. Once I am sure there is enough interest to justify planning the trip, I will produce a brochure with a firm cost and you will have priority booking.
