On Tour

San Francisco Ballet belongs to San Francisco—but also to the world.

When the Repertory Season comes to a close, we take to the road, showcasing our artists’ talent, innovation, and brilliance.

This summer, we’re off to London and Sun Valley, Idaho, so read on to see our programming and maybe even join us there? You can also listen to a podcast about what it’s like to take the Company on tour.

“The Sun Valley Pavilion is such a beautiful venue in one of the most natural settings in which we have ever performed. It is a perfect venue to perform in and enjoy world-class ballet. And I think the audience will be very pleased with the quality and variety of dance that we are bringing with our two programs." –Helgi Tomasson, Artistic Director & Principal Choreographer
