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).

Rhythm reigns supreme in Michael Smuin’s first world premiere of the season, Obrigado, Brazil (Thank You, Brazil). Set to vibrant South American music by Yo-Yo Ma and an all-star ensemble of Brazilian musicians, it’s an exotic journey through classical, samba and bossa nova beats.
Smuin Ballet’s in-house choreographer, the critically acclaimed Amy Seiwert, will present her eagerly anticipated world premiere of Revealing the Bridge.
Rounding out this exciting program is the return of Shinju, one of Michael Smuin’s most powerful works based on an 18th century Japanese play about two star-crossed lovers.
