Innovations is a remarkable bill of in-demand works. SacBallet’s time honored connection with The George Balanchine Trust continues with Apollo created by George Balanchine at age 24. Set to the music of Igor Stravinsky, Apollo achieved international recognition for the choreographer and began his lifelong partnership with the composer. Balanchine considered Apollo to be his artistic coming of age.

Innovations also presents Val Caniparoli’s Ibsen’s House ballet, which weaves a story around five female characters extracted from Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen’s plays. Andrea Schermoly visits Sacramento Ballet for her first premiere with the company, SALVE. Drawing inspiration from the fearless, triumphant spirit of women in the face of oppression, Schermoly’s breathtaking new work will empower and uplift every member of the audience.
