Stage Pick: Modern Masters from Sacramento Ballet
The Sacramento Ballet’s next-to-last production under co-artistic directors Ron and Carinne Binda Cunningham is this weekend’s Modern Masters, a trio of breathlessly entertaining dances. Ma Cong’s visceral “Blood Rush” is joined by Ron Cunningham’s sensual “Bolero” and Septime Weber’s irreverent “Fluctuating Hemlines.” It’s the first dance program ever at The Sofia, the B Street Theatre Company arts complex. The Genius of Balanchine, the Cunninghams’ final bow with the ballet, will come June 14-17. Fri 7:30pm, Sat 2pm & 7:30pm, Sun 2pm; Through May 27; $65; The Sofia Tsakopoulos Center for the Arts (The Sofia), 2700 Capitol Avenue; (916) 443-5300; sacballet.org.
