“A delight”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

I went to the San Francisco ballet in Paris, at the theatre du Chatelet. Very beautiful building with amazing view from the Diaghilev ball room over the Seine River and the old medieval palais de justice on Ile de la cite. The San Francisco ballet is present in Paris for a short period and I enjoyed an amazing representation with 2 out of 4 ballets that were never performed before. Very good lightning, costumes made in Seattle, and performers over the top. The crowd kept applauding for long minutes keeping the ballet on stage.

“SF Ballet can be good or less than that”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

I used to have season tickets to SF Ballet a few years ago and their performances were nearly always good or excellent. Then I stopped attending for a few years. I renewed this past year (2014) Two performances were awful and one was excellent.

The music and acoustics are quite good.

We ought to support the arts but SF Ballet needs to improve a bit too.

“World class ballet”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

I've seen many ballet companies and San Francisco's really stands out for the quality of dancing, variety of programming and their orchestra. I would definitely recommend going to a performance to anyone visiting San Francisco during the season (December Nutcracker and then Jan-May) or any locals who are at all interested in dance or music. The programs range from very traditional full-length ballets to contemporary dance.

“World class ballet company”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We always look forward to the new season of SF Ballet. A variety of programs for every taste, some amazing dancers and of course the beautiful SF Opera house. Principal soloist Yuan Yuan Tan is a world class ballerina and always a joy to watch!
