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 went with my granddaughter who was visiting from Mendocino County. She had taken a dance workshop at ODC last summer and loved it, so we were both familiar with the organization.
Although the event we attended is an annual event, neither of us had attended previous performances, so we did not know what to expect and were looking forward to being surprised.
We were treated to two wonderful dance performances of two very different styles by two exciting young choreographers. Then a very interesting Q&A with the choreographers following the performance. The space is very intimate and well designed for maximum view from all seats.
Drinks and snacks were available at very reasonable prices, and drinks were allowed in the theater during the performance.
Street parking was easy at this time (5:30 PM Sunday eve).
