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).

“Intoxicating.” Los Angeles Times
“Teasing, hot, a sizzling adventure! Drove the audience to a frenzy! If you have not seen it, you should.” San Francisco Chronicle
Luis Bravo’s Forever Tango traces the colorful history of tango through music, dance and dramatic vignettes, featuring an all-Argentine cast of 14 dancers and a 12-piece orchestra. The dancers tango in their own specific styles, offering unspoken insight into this mysterious and passionate art form. The orchestra is led by Victor Lavallen on the bandoneon, an accordion-like instrument imported to Argentina from Germany in 1886, and is the iconic sound most associated with the tango. The live orchestra boasts four of the roughly 200 bandoneon players existing in the world today. Created and directed by Bravo, the production took San Francisco by storm in 1994, later going on to Broadway for a year-long run, where it garnered multiple Tony and Drama Desk Award nominations. The production returned to San Francisco in 1999 and was hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle as “Forever magical…this sensual musical has perfected the passionate power of the famed dance.”
