Widely considered to be one of the top three ballet companies in America, San Francisco Ballet invites you to attend three performances from its 2014 season in the opulent War Memorial Opera House. This package allows you to see some of the most exciting dance performances in the country, some of them being staged for the first time ever. Your SF Ballet experience begins with the season opener, Giselle. One the greatest romantic ballets in the classical repertory, this is the heartbreaking tale of a peasant girl with a fragile heart, a passion for dancing and a weakness for a man who belongs to someone else. Next, you'll attend a program of three ballets that includes an exciting world premiere by Val Caniparoli, as well as encore presentations of two critically acclaimed works from the 2013 season. The final performance is Cinderella, Christopher Wheeldon's magical new production of the fairy tale ballet that was so popular last year it's been brought back for another round. Please see the full event description for more details on the performances and schedule. Learn More

This is my Fourth visit to Cirque du Soliel. While I loved the show, I sensed that some of the performers were not as experienced or proficient as I thought they should have been.
One woman in a ruby colored outfit in a solo aerial act, did not have smooth actions and sort of wildly grasped the trapeze rope when completing her flips.
Another performer in a multi person act, on a tight rope, did not make the jump he had intended and lost his headpiece.
One other act where they used the board to spring people into the air, having the person in the air land on the shoulders of a stack (2 people) of performers, was a miss and they did not complete that particular part of the act.
When you pay that much to see a show, (thank you for the Great Goldstar discount!!!) you don't expect to see that many mistakes. I have not seen those type performance errors in the last three shows that I viewed. Maybe Cirque is expanding rapidly and have been accepting more performers who are not quite to the previous standard?
I would return because I love these performances. I hope my comments help in some way.
Quotes & Highlights

<p>Kooza tells the story of The Innocent, a melancholy loner in search of his place in the world.
Kooza is a return to the origins of Cirque du Soleil: It combines two circus traditions – acrobatic performance and the art of clowning. The show highlights the physical demands of human performance in all its splendor and fragility, presented in a colorful mélange that emphasizes bold slapstick humor.</p> <p>The Innocent's journey brings him into contact with a panoply of comic characters such as the King, the Trickster, the Pickpocket, and the Obnoxious Tourist and his Bad Dog.</p> <p>Between strength and fragility, laughter and smiles, turmoil and harmony, Kooza explores themes of fear, identity, recognition and power. The show is set in an electrifying and exotic visual world full of surprises, thrills, chills, audacity and total involvement.</p>
