Episode 85: Vito Mazzeo

Principal Dancer Vito Mazzeo danced in five of six ballets in Programs 2 and 3, and in this interview he goes into detail about rehearsing and performing Yuri Possokhov’s Francesa da Rimini, Helgi Tomasson’s Trio, and Mark Morris’ Beaux. After explaining how seeing Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s Winter Dreams as a young boy inspired him to dance, he describes his training at Milan’s La Scala Ballet School and his transition to San Francisco Ballet after dancing in Britain and Italy. Drawn to the Company because of its excellence and varied repertory, he talks about what it means to him as an artist to experience such range and opportunities for growth.
