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).

My friend and I both enjoyed this. Very professional and the pieces were all different which was cool. Some of the dancers really stood out. This is a new company and they do need to work on synchronizing their moves. It was obvious when they were slightly off (not in sync) and it happened often and on more than one piece. Overall, well worth the money (even full price). I will see them again to see their progression as a company.
