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).

I've seen a LOT of ballets over the past decades, and ONEGIN @ SFBallet was without question the BEST story ballet I've ever seen !
It was all about drama & interpretive classical ballet. No fairy tale nor pantomime here.
The visuals...colors, imagery, symbolism were lovely. The mixture of Russian folk dance movements into classically performed group ensembles were magical & fun. Having real human characters & emotions expressed to perfection in dance was so moving; I loved the intricate choreography ! and the cast...they could not have been better. The principals had even researched the characters & the play to form their personal understanding.
Now I'm tempted to go see another performance, to see another cast weave its own magic to the characters & dance challenges.
Bravo, S.F.Ballet, and to Goldstar for making our tickets affordable to us.
