Isaac Hernandez, formerly with San Francisco Ballet and now a member of Dutch National Ballet, is producing a gala called "Desperatres" that will be presented twice in Mexico, on August 13 and August 26. DNB posted a link to the gala poster for the August 13 performance, which includes the URL to the gala website.

This is a link to the website:
http://www.despertaresisaac.com/

(Warning, it takes a while to load and uses lots of bells and whistles, and, eventually, there's a blast of audio.)

Currently, 20 selections are planned, danced by the following roster (as of today), subject to change:

saac Hernández · Het Nationale Ballet
Esteban Hernández · San Francisco Ballet
Jurgita Dronina · Het Nationale Ballet


Gonzalo Garcia · New York City Ballet
Tyler Peck · New York City Ballet

Vadim Muntagirov · English National Ballet

Steven McRae · Royal Ballet Londres

Works by the following choreographers are planned:

Yes, it is -- written on the website is "De forma muy emotiva, su hermano Esteban Hernández se presentará en el evento recién graduado de la Royal Ballet School de Londres, siendo el primer mexicano en lograrlo," which, according to bing translator, means, "In a very emotional way, his brother Esteban Hernández will present at the event, recent graduate of the Royal Ballet School in London, being the first Mexican to do so."


I so wish I could go: it looks like a wonderful line-up, and the food in Mexico City is phenomenal.

Actually, I was curious about "[font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][size=3]Esteban Hernández · San Francisco Ballet". He's not on the current roster.[/size][/font]

Good news for SFB.  If he has anything like his brother's talent, he'll be quite an asset.
