Preview: ‘Fast Forward’ at the Sacramento Ballet
Sacramento Ballet’s 2018-2019 season comes to a close this weekend, marking almost one year with new artistic director Amy Seiwert. For their final program, the company presents Fast Forward, a showcase for three short works that represent the future of ballet. Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s “Written and Forgotten” revisits childhood memories, while Val Caniparoli’s “The Bridge” tells a tragic love story set during the Bosnian War. Rounding out the show is the world premiere of Seiwert’s “Elpis,” which reimagines the Greek myth of Pandora’s Box. What better way to cap off a season than with a story about hope for the future?
