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).

From the lands of the pharaohs to the Palace of Fine Arts, Anfoushi Egyptian Folkloric Dance Troupe makes their only Bay Area performance, as part of their first U.S. tour. Direct from Egypt, Anfoushi is recognized internationally, from the Middle East to Russia to Canada to eastern Europe and beyond, for distinct authenticity in presenting the rich musical and dance traditions of the Alexandria region. Steeped in both ancient and contemporary history, Egypt has a gracious legacy of cultural contributions for thousands of years. Anfoushi captures the essence of the Egyptian folkloric heritage in a full spectrum of dynamics in costumes, melodies and movements that captivate audiences with their sheer energy and exuberance. The concert is a journey into the delightful artistry of Alexandria and a closer glimpse at the folkloric tapestry of Egypt.
