Independent curator Brad Rosenstein will give a multimedia presentation, “From Tutu to Haute Couture: Costume and the Ballet,” which combines a brief history of ballet costume with more specific examples from Rudolf Nureyev: A Life in Dance. The program will culminate in a fashion show of costumes from the archives of San Francisco Ballet, modeled by San Francisco Ballet School Trainees.
