Opening Night Gala

San Francisco City Hall & War Memorial Opera House

This year’s Opening Night Gala: Ever Magical explores the wonder that is at the heart of SF Ballet—enchanting story ballets like Cinderella©, Swan Lake, and Frankenstein—as well as the almost otherworldly abilities of our dancers and musicians who bring our dreams to life on stage, night after night. The Opening Night Gala brings our artists and audiences together in an evening that can only be described as pure magic.

SF Ballet. Ever Magical. Join us, won’t you?
