Parking is too expensive for this venue. Better - Metro and shuttle. even if you have to leave earlier since the Metro is so unreliable these days.

The weather was getting cold! but the shuttle took care of that problem!. I wore dressy - not formal. Many people were dressed up festive etc. .

The sets were tremendous and the dancing superb. A few parts of the ballet dragged but overall an excellent, recommended show

“Tomasson’s finest achievement…a breathtaking contribution to the Giselle tradition” —San Francisco Chronicle


San Francisco Ballet performs Artistic Director Helgi Tomasson’s staging of the two-act Giselle, first brought to the Kennedy Center in 1999 and based on the original 1841 production. The company’s critically acclaimed production is replete with lavish scenery and costumes, lyrical music, and dance epitomizing the pure classicism that defines the romantic ballets.
