Called "the most forward-looking American ballet company on the continent" (Contra Costa Times), San Francisco Ballet rarely disappoints in its selection and performance of innovative, genre-defining works. For this exciting triple bill, SF Ballet presents the world premiere of Hummingbird by Liam Scarlett, a contemporary ballet wunderkind who, at only 26, was recently appointed artist-in-residence at The Royal Ballet. The program also includes the return of Helgi Tomasson's masterful The Fifth Season and Serge Lifar's elegant Suite en Blanc, a brilliant showcase of French neoclassicism featuring "a parade of stunning individual and Hollywood-big corps performances" (San Jose Mercury News).

Celebrating its 20th anniversary, one of Mexico’s most popular exports returns with a veritable fiesta of culture and folklore. The history of Mexican dance is long and rich, starting with the ancient civilizations that flourished in the country preceding the arrival of the first Europeans. Today, that legacy reflects a cultural melting pot, combining Mexican, Indian, Spanish, and African elements. The company celebrates that diverse history and the people of Mexico in colorful performances that have earned standing ovations from Cuba to Malaysia. The music will be performed live on authentic string instruments.
