misc_none 2:00 PM  -  4:00 PM San Francisco ballet: Romeo and Juliet Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Lincoln Center Local: Free Screenings, a program created by Lincoln Center Education and hosted by libraries and community centers, brings the best of Lincoln Center—world-renowned performances coupled with unparalleled educational resources—off its Manhattan-based campus and into communities anywhere. 

San Francisco Ballet: Romeo and Juliet is a screening of a performance at the War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco on May 7, 2015.

About the performance:

With its passionate choreography, spine-tingling swordsmanship, and celebrated score by Sergei Prokofiev, this colorful and emotional retelling of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet has packed houses around the world. Helgi Tomasson’s bravura interpretation of the Bard’s greatest tragedy “lifts Shakespeare’s complex and familiar language off the gilded pages and translates it into lucid classical choreography that is visceral, fresh, and ultimately sublime” (Huffington Post).

    Contact: Priya Rathnam   508-841-8531   prathnam@cwmars.org
   

Why so stressed? Is it work, a relationship, exhaustion or a combination of stuff? Stress is an integral part of our life experience. When tension builds up… if we don’t release it, we can become like a pressure cooker on the verge of exploding. So, when stress takes over, it’s essential to:

  •  Relieve: Find easy ways to release the tension and increase your positivity.
  •  Reduce: Know your stress triggers to understand and deal with them.
  •  Resolve: Why wait for the stress to build up? Build your capacity to handle life! 

Join us for tips on how to relieve, reduce and resolve your stress.
