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).

Reviews & Ratings
In 2006, the great prima ballerina Natalia Makarova thrilled Bay Area audiences with her dazzling new take on Tchaikovsky’s tale of immortal love, choreographing and directing a fully staged production of Swan Lake showcasing Russia’s renowned Tchaikovsky Perm Ballet. Accompanied by full orchestra, and featuring lavish sets and costumes, Makarova’s lovely production returns by popular demand, this year featuring two superstar soloists (Mar 28 and Mar 30) from Europe. Trained in Moscow, Polina Semionova is a principal at the Berlin State Ballet and recently conquered UK audiences as Odette/Odile in memorable performances with the English National Ballet (“dazzlingly seductive—a performance of total confidence and virtuosity,” said the Sunday Times, London). Denis Matvienko, principal guest dancer with the Bolshoi Ballet recently stirred New York crowds to delirium, “like a throwback to the days of wildly exhibitionistic star dancing by the likes of Rudolf Nureyev and Alexander Godunov” (The New York Times). Made possible, in part, by the Bernard Osher Foundation
