We always look forward to the new season of SF Ballet. A variety of programs for every taste, some amazing dancers and of course the beautiful SF Opera house. Principal soloist Yuan Yuan Tan is a world class ballerina and always a joy to watch!

If you're new to ballet, try a program that offers a medley of several different pieces, by different composers and choreographers. You're guaranteed to love at least one piece. Even if you're on a budget, seats are usually available for less than the price of...More

I had never been to the ballet until this year. I'm glad I chose the San Francisco Ballet as my first. I was lucky enough to see the last program of the season and was completely blown away. All three segments were exceptional. It's great...More

The San Francisco Ballet is a joy to behold. It has introduced a number of world premiers in the last few years. The company has some very good dancers. Productions are often lush.

Once you've seen the SF Ballet, you're tainted for other companies. You will learn to expect quality, artistry, and amazing choreography. And, they deliver on a consistent basis. I've been a subscriber for over 25 years, and hope to keep going for the next 25!
