“City Ballet has become San Diego’s most professional troupe.” —San Diego Union-Tribune


Heralded as “a top-tier dance company” and “an oasis of classical dance in a city otherwise too often a desert,” City Ballet is San Diego’s world-class professional ballet company, now celebrating its nineteenth season, and under the direction of former Boston Ballet and Stuttgart Ballet dancers Steven and Elizabeth Wistrich. City Ballet is a non-profit organization committed to furthering the ballet art form. The company produces classic and contemporary ballet programs that critics rave as “polished, eye-catching and delightful,” and “highly entertaining and professional.” International dance critic Sheila Orysiek wrote in 2006, “San Diego finally has a classical ballet company that is worthy of the name.” City Ballet’s productions have made the Top Ten Dance Events of the Year named by the San Diego Union-Tribune for the past five years.
