The San Francisco Ballet comes back to The Kennedy Center for the first time since 2008 with a mixed repertory program and performances of Romeo & Juliet.
Nov. 12-Dec. 21: Losing Something You Never Had
Artist Benjamin Bellas never got the chance to meet his uncle. The man was lost at sea during the Vietnam War, and years later his name was accidentally omitted from the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Losing Something You Never Had includes sculptures, videos, artifacts and photos that relate to the fallen soldier. By displaying his uncle's personal effects and documents related to his disappearance, Bellas explores the topics of loss, absence, and searching. You can view Losing Something You Never Had at CulturalDC's Flashpoint Gallery through December 21.
Nov. 13-18: Romeo & Juliet
Is it better to have loved and lost or never to have loved at all? The San Francisco Ballet returns to the Kennedy Center tomorrow night with a mixed repertory program. The company opens Romeo & Juliet on Thursday, with performances running through Sunday. The classic story of love, loss and loyalty features choreography by Helgi Tomasson and music by Sergei Prokofiev.
Music: "I Miss You" by Webbie feat. Letoya Luckett
