2016 — 2017

Welcome to the Season

There is a distinct rhythm to our year here at San Francisco Ballet. Each December, we open our War Memorial Opera House season with Nutcracker, the Bay Area’s best-loved holiday tradition. In January, our Opening Night Gala marks the start of our Repertory Season—eight spectacular programs that take the stage between late January and early May. Then, in the summer and fall, we go on tour to the world’s most celebrated dance capitals. Read on to learn more about what’s in store for the 2016–17 Season—and join us, won’t you?


2017-18 Season

Our 2017–18 Season includes familiar favorites, classic fairy tales, contemporary ballets, and a boundary-breaking exploration of the future of ballet. At the heart of our 2018 Repertory Season is Unbound: A Festival of New Works, for which 12 international choreographers will create 12 world premiere ballets. Join us, won’t you?
