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).

A very very strange mix--first half was community theater feeling rather odd melange of stuff (the chicken dance, russian dance, hindu dance), then a break and then a wildly inappropriate burlesque, sort of punk ethos circus with cocaine references and half naked semi s and m vibe whips on fire. Ah, only in San Francisco. Luckily my six year old missed all the rather dated anarchist/sex vibes and loved the whole thing, but it was a bizarrely badly configured event.
The afternoon performance “Tales of Enchantment” is intended for the whole family and features the new family production by Vau De Vire full of clown and interaction with audience of all ages.
Evening show “Storytime for the Inner Child” is intended for a grown audience, allowing for more artistic freedom and expression.
