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).
