About San Francisco Ballet

San Francisco Ballet, long recognized for pushing boundaries in dance, has a history of making history. Founded in 1933, the company staged the first full-length American productions of Coppélia (1938) and Swan Lake (1940) and, in 1944, launched an annual holiday tradition with the first full-length production of Nutcracker in the U.S.

Led by Artistic Director Tamara Rojo, SF Ballet is accompanied by its own orchestra and operates one of the country’s most prestigious schools of ballet. Today SF Ballet builds on its heritage by commissioning groundbreaking dance from today’s top choreographers, by uncovering new choreographic talent, and by staging modern classics and the works that make up the canon of classical ballet. This approach defines ballet in the 21st century, and it makes San Francisco Ballet the essential place to see the most adventurous dance in America.
