S.F. Ballet "Frankenstein"



Liam Scarlett, the youngest choreographer ever to have a full-length ballet commissioned by The Royal Ballet, helms this darkly beautiful and adult exploration of Mary Shelley’s Gothic classic. Lowell Liebermann, one of America’s most frequently recorded living composers, created the original score. Master designer John Macfarlane brings us sumptuous costumes that evoke the richness of early 18th-century Geneva, and a set that will astonish. More a love story than a monster story, Frankenstein is a meditation on what it means to be human. On its London debut in May 2016, the production was called “lavish” by The New York Times and “emotionally intense” by The Guardian (UK).A co-production with The Royal Ballet. Frankenstein deals with mature themes and subject matter. Not recommended for children under 12. ­Runtime: Approximately 2 hours and 50 minutes, including 25- and 20-minute intermissions.
