Since Scarlett was familiar with Macfarlane’s creations for Jiří Kylián, choreographer and director of Nederlands Dans Theater, he was eager to enlist the stagecraft magician for that initial splash. As Macfarlane tells it, “One day the phone rang, and it was Kevin (O’Hare, company manager of the Royal Ballet), asking if I had heard of Liam Scarlett. Because I’m also a painter, I do have a habit of sealing myself off hermetically in the studio, so I don’t go to see a lot of things. I said no, of course I’ve never heard of him. ‘Well, we’re giving him his big main-stage break, and we’ve asked who he wants to design it, and he said you.’ I was pretty touched at that balera toddler ballet shoes.

“The Royal Ballet sent me two discs of his work,” Macfarlane continues. “One night I couldn’t sleep, and I watched  them at 2 o’clock in the morning balera toddler ballet shoes. I thought it was absolutely breathtaking work. It made me think I want a part of that.”. When Scarlett was approached by the Royal Ballet to choreograph an evening-length piece — a co-production with another company, because of the financial climate — “I jumped at the chance and said it has to be San Francisco Ballet or no one,” he recalls. “It’s a company large enough to be able to do it, and has an opera house that John loves to design for. Having just worked with them, I knew there were dancers who sparked my interest. Kevin (by then artistic director at the Royal Ballet) picked up the phone and called (San Francisco Ballet’s) Helgi (Tomasson). Helgi said yes..

“I insisted that with every stage of the creative process — in the studio, with music, with designs — both companies were kept up to date all the time, so that it wasn’t a question of doing it in London, and then we box it up and send it to San Francisco. The dancers here that I was inspired to create lead roles for would come over to London and work side-by-side with the leads there.” balera toddler ballet shoes. The Royal Ballet presented the world premiere of “Frankenstein” in May 2016. San Francisco’s North American premiere runs Feb. 17-26 at the War Memorial Opera House..

About why he chose the 1818 Mary Shelley story for the co-production, Scarlett says, “Frankenstein had been … niggling away at me for a while. And when that one thought kept coming back no matter what other stories I went through, and that one kept knocking, I felt I should just go with it.”. The creative process involved close collaboration with Macfarlane balera toddler ballet shoes. The designer says, “First of all, I need to know how many people are going to be in the piece and then, primarily, the space that (Scarlett) needs on the stage. Does he see it as a very enclosed space or a space that can open up or extend during the piece?  But mostly, Liam wants the dancers to appear from nowhere..

“The other issue is color,” he continues balera toddler ballet shoes. “Frankenstein was, in my eyes, always a colorless piece. I had this idea that was almost one of those early photographs that people take of arctic exploration. The light bleeds — it’s sepia or that blueish tinge. You don’t see a strong color.”. Scarlett says, “For both of us, the music was a big jumping-off point. John said ‘Frankenstein’ was one of the hardest ones, because we didn’t have the score yet when he started designing.” The music Scarlett decided upon is a commissioned score by American composer Lowell Liebermann, whose First Piano Concerto he had used for his ballet “Viscera” (2012)..
