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
The beloved Bay Area tradition continues as Mark Morris’s immortal The Hard Nut — a glorious and heartfelt reimagining of the Nutcracker tale — returns to its favorite holiday home! “Seriously entertaining, gorgeously danced, and improbably touching” (San Francisco Chronicle), this holiday classic is depicted with tremendous humor and wit by way of fantastic costumes and comic-book sets based on the drawings of artist Charles Burns. Morris’s unique interpretation faithfully celebrates Tchaikovsky’s complete original musical score. But what distinguishes The Hard Nut is the tenderness behind Morris’s dazzling wit, the brilliance of the dancing itself, and scenes of deeply felt emotion.
