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

I'm astounded that this show has not sold out every single performance. It was fantastic. All 4 performers were absolutely brilliant and solidly prepared --- this is Broadway quality in our backyard. They were all gracious enough to sign CDs after the show as well, and I was on a high from this performance all weekend long. This show (and any show with performers of this caliber) should not be missed. Best thing about the Goldstar ticket (the show was worth full price)? - I was in the 6th row, dead center! The performers even said they recognized me from "the front" as the one who was smiling the whole time! I couldn't help it: the concert was fantastic!
This show is a night of musical theater related to the biographical book about the career of Stephen Schwartz, Defying Gravity by Carol de Giere.
