Preludes and Arabesques

San Diego Ballet’s artistic director Javier Velasco choreographs a rapturous evening of classical dance exploring the poetic, dreamlike world of Claude Debussy. From the romantic Claire de Lune to the evocative Afternoon of a Faun, the celebrated French composer’s works spring to life in an evening of open air delights. Join us for this not to be missed evening of world premieres.
