Seemed like a hot idea at the time ...

Posted @ 11:14 AM

Last year, when City Ballet was groping for an appropriate theme for its 15th anniversary opening performance, it hit upon a hot one: Ballet on Fire.

After last week, the ballet's promoters are hoping that the public can see the irony in the name.

And when all is said and done, it is a pretty hot program this Saturday and Sunday:

"Ballet On Fire" includes dances choreographed to The Firebird and Stravinsky Suites, Flames of Paris Pas de Deux, and Spartacus Pas de Deux. The program will conclude with George Balanchine's famous George Gershwin ballet "Who Cares?"

Performances will be at the Joan B. Kroc Performing Arts Center, 6611 University Ave., San Diego -- Saturday, Nov. 3 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 4 at 2 p.m.
