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).

The program was musically a bit "harsh" for my taste, but I still enjoyed it due to the terrific quality of dancers we have @ SFB. The "Beaux" was typically delightful Mark Morris, and Yuri's "Rite of Spring" was a great showcase for the many highly skilled Corps members, who rarely have such a grand showcase for their skills. I've a tix for the "Onegin" program that I'm looking forward to, and hope to get most of the other SFB programs, too. Thanks for making it possible to afford my ballet passion. Hoping you'll offer SF opera tix also.
