The feeling is mutual.
A synergy has developed between San Francisco Ballet and Hamburg Ballet, since SFB's U.S. premiere of John Neumeier's The Little Mermaid in 2010. On June 22, Yuan Yuan Tan, Sarah Van Patten, Tilt Helimets, and Davit Karapetyan guest star in Mermaid alongside the Hamburg company dancers in Germany. (They are reprising their roles in the PBS documentary on Mermaid--see "Plugged In," Dec.--now available on DVD.) After two mixed-bill performances by the full company, several SFB members will dance in the Nijinsky Gala XXXVIII on July 1, part of the annual Hamburger Ballett-Tage festival. Next year, Hamburg comes to the City by the Bay, with Neumeier's opus Nijinsky. www.sfballet.org www.hamburgballett.de.
