On Wednesday, January 23, 2019, San Francisco Ballet will celebrate the opening of its 2019 Repertory Season with its Opening Night Gala, This is Passion. Following the creative energy of Unbound: A Festival of New Works, the Gala will celebrate the unbridled artistry and expressiveness of SF Ballet, where passion for dance is transformative. From the breathtaking physicality of dancers to the daring originality of choreographers to the adoration of audiences—This is Passion.
Proceeds from Opening Night Gala benefit a wide range of SF Ballet artistic initiatives, including new works, scholarships for San Francisco Ballet School students, and community education programs for thousands of youths, families, and seniors.
