How do you label your multiple pointe shoes? By naming them after mutants, of course.

City Ballet’s newest ballet “Requiem” premieres in May. And you won’t want to miss it.

We are finishing up our first week of rehearsals here at the studio for Elizabeth Wistrich’s brand new ballet, set to Mozart’s Requiem.

This ambitious project has everyone involved very excited! The show will be accompanied by a live orchestra and choir, and you can expect some breathtaking choreography inspired by the legendary score.

Check back for more rehearsal photos in the weeks to come, and if you’re in the San Diego area May 9-11, come see us at the Spreckels theater downtown! The program will open with Swan Lake: Act II and conclude with Requiem.
