In the Wings: Don Quixote Photoessay

Erik Tomasson has been San Francisco Ballet’s photographer since 2004 and has a unique perspective on the Company from his decade and a half of working with the dancers. These images, shot by Tomasson from the wings, offer a rare look behind the scenes of the Helgi Tomasson/Yuri Possokhov Don Quixote.
