The Opera House is just as magical as I remember it. My mom took my siblings and I to SF Ballet perfomances a few times a year (Nutcracker, Swan Lake & Cinderella to name a few). I now take my grand daughter to the Nutcracker...More

Civic Center is the seat of power for all things government and performance-related in the city. Although its streets are best walked during daytime, numerous cultural gems are within close proximity to one another. The symphony, opera, ballet, and jazz center offer year round entertainment within the shadow of the city’s Beaux-Arts crown jewel: the gold tipped dome of City Hall.
