SF Ballet's 'The Little Mermaid': A Tale of Sacrifice and Psychological Transformation

This is not a Disney sing-along. Choreographer John Neumeier’s interpretation of Danish author Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid is much deeper, darker, and creepier than the animated movie. Andersen experienced the pain of unrequited love with both men and women, and this fable is considered the most autobiographical of his works. Neumeier pays tribute to the author with the addition of a new character, a poet, who also falls in love with the prince. A tale of sacrifice and psychological transformation, complete with exquisite costume and set design all done by Neumeier himself, the performance is a journey into spiraling desperation.

Tequila & Ballet: Thursday Nights at the Opera House

Thursdays are the new Friday in San Francisco, from the Academy of Sciences' after-hours events to the SF Ballet, who've just thrown their hats in the ring.

This Thursday, the SF Ballet and ENCORE! combine an evening of world class dance followed by a private cocktail reception for young professionals with tequila tasting & cocktails provided by Tres Agaves, DJ beats and light bites. But don't drink too much Tequila or you might start reliving Black Swan.

Look of the Week: SF Ballet Presents Giselle

The window displays around Union Square are all a flutter with fancy tutus and pretty pink pointe shoes, circling buzz for the SF Ballet's 2011 Season, opening with Giselle this Saturday evening. 

The ballet is a classic place to see and be seen in SF. With that in mind, we're channeling our inner Gisele, and thinking long, lean and elegant.
