SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) June 11, 2013
Jill Milan®, a provider of designer Italian handbags, today announced it will contribute 20 percent of sales during the month of June to support the Estonian National Ballet's trip to the United States for performances in San Francisco. Jill Milan hosted a reception June 5 at its San Francisco store to kick off the campaign.
Tiit Helimets, a principal dancer with the San Francisco Ballet and a native of Estonia, is spearheading the effort to bring his homeland's dancers to perform in San Francisco. The troupe's first performance in the U.S. will be June 28 as part of the Estonian Culture Festival at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. Tickets are available online at http://estonianculturefestival.eventbrite.com.
For the Friday performance, Helimets has choreographed "Time" to music by Paula Matthusen. Estonian Marina Kesler has adapted "Othello" to the music of Arvo Part. Between the two works, actress Hanna-Liina Vosa and pianist Hando Nahkur, distinguished Estonian artists, will perform. Forty young members of the Estonian Youth Wind Orchestra, ages 15-25, will open the program.
A video sample of the Estonian National Ballet performing is available online.
