2017–18 Season: Solo Dancer in La Traviata; Lola Montez in Girls of the Golden West
Making her San Francisco Opera debut with La Traviata, award-winning dancer Lorena Feijóo trained at Escuela Nacional de Ballet de Cuba. She performed with Ballet Nacional de Cuba, Ballet of Monterrey, Royal Ballet of Flanders, and the Joffrey Ballet before joining San Francisco Ballet as a principal dancer in 1999. As a guest artist, Feijóo has performed extensively, including pas de deux from Don Quixote at the Benois de la Danse Gala at the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow in 2011; Garcia’s Majismo at the American Ballet Theatre gala honoring José Manuel Carreño in 2011; and in ACT’s The Tosca Project in San Francisco in 2010. Later this season at San Francisco Opera, Feijóo creates the role of Lola Montez in the world premiere of John Adams’ Girls of the Golden West.
