Three of SFB’s Leading Men Just Retired

Three of San Francisco’s most stunning leading men have just retired from the company. After multi-decade careers, Joan Boada, Pascal Molat and Gennadi Nedvigin took their final bows during an emotional farewell performance on April 17. Nedvigin will join Atlanta Ballet as its new artistic director.

All three men will be remembered for their dazzling presence. In a series of videos created by SFB, company members, directors and choreographers talk about all three principals and what makes them special—they’re clearly beloved by their colleagues. Boada’s pyrotechnics, Molat’s characterizations and Nedvigin’s classicism will be sorely missed on the War Memorial Opera House stage. Check out the videos below:
