Overview

Founded in 1933, the San Francisco Ballet is the oldest professional ballet company in the United States, and presents world-class productions of classic and cutting-edge dance programs housed in the elegantly ornate War Memorial Opera House, a building replete with molded stucco and liberal gilding. Starting with the leadership of its first artistic director, William Christensen, through its current artistic director, the company has maintained a dedication to technical excellence and aesthetic artistry. This was the first American ballet company to present a full-length production of The Nutcracker Suite back in 1944.
