Great Night at the Asian Art Museum!

On Wednesday night, I was thrilled to be invited by Goretti Liu to the opening of the Terracotta Warriors exhibit at the Asian Art Museum. It’s a fascinating story—the First Emperor of China sought to achieve immortality by building himself a massive tomb with thousands of life-size terracotta warriors (and their horses, chariots, etc.) as protection. It was amazing to see some of the soldiers on display Wednesday night and to learn that no two faces of the warriors are alike. Being there really made me proud of my country’s heritage.

Next week we open Programs 3 and 4 of our season—hope to see you at the Opera House!

With Willie Brown at the Asian Art Museum.

    We’re delighted that you could join us. Opening night was a wonderful way to welcome the exhibition–and to celebrate the Lunar New Year.

    The artworks are amazing, and the exhibition itself tells a fascinating story.

    Thank you, Yuan Yuan, for your help in finding our “lost” warrior. He made it back just in time for the exhibition.

    Best wishes,

    My husband and I have been subscribers for many years and attend every program of the series. We feel so lucky to have such a talented and now a world-class, ballet company. It has come a long way. Accolades to Helgi for raising the quality, through his leadership and ability to attract and retain the best.

    Every SFB dancer is incredibly talented: there is no question. But there is something you bring to the stage that is unique and breathtaking: a combination of precision, poise, and persona. We hope you will be dancing many more years at SFB.

    This year, we noticed that you were absent from most Saturday evening programs. (We look at the casting sheets in advance and noticed that you were actually removed from one dance in program 5.) We were thrilled that you were in two dances in program 7 last night. (The casting sheet had several errors including omitting your name from Symphonc Dances.)

    We hope to see you in program 6 next Saturday… The casting sheet has not been posted on the web. And of course, we hope you are performing in Cinderella on Saturday, May 4!

    Best wishes for a superb ending to another season.
