We love SF Ballet and especially enjoy seeing new dances by up and coming choreographers. Dancers seem to get better each season.

A wonderful evening, the foyer was very festive, the production was stunning for our first time visit to the ballet. The pre show drinks were very expensive, if we were to return, we would not purchase from the venue.

Not only is it great ballet, but in the historic San Francisco Opera House, retrofitted for earthquake safety about 30 years ago. A very enjoyable experience.

The beautiful costumes, the venue, which normally we combine with a memorable meal before or after, depending of the timing. Coordinating timing is very important as it is hard to predict how long it may take for us driving from the Peninsula. Parking is... More

This troupe is about as good as it gets in terms of dancing, creativity of the choreography, and the orchestra. We are season ticket holders, and we are never disappointed.

Long time season holder. This is world class period. If you have the chance, see a performance. You will not be disappointed. The staging is always beautiful, and the dancers exceptional.

I went to the San Francisco ballet in Paris, at the theatre du Chatelet. Very beautiful building with amazing view from the Diaghilev ball room over the Seine River and the old medieval palais de justice on Ile de la cite.
