They only allow bottled water inside the theatre, so if you get a drink that isn't water at intermission, make sure you have time to drink it. Drinks and snacks are expensive, so if you can do without your pocketbook will be happier!

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.
