Get lifted off your feet this spring when Romeo & Juliet comes to the San Francisco Ballet. One of the most complex and heart wrenching tales of love lost, Romeo & Juliet is set to take the stage at the San Francisco Ballet this May for one week of performances. The San Francisco Ballet's ensemble troupe is one of the best in the country, and Helgi Tomasson's unique interpretation of the classic story brings to life the longing and love that Shakespeare so beautifully captured in his written work. This season, make sure you take some time out for the San Francisco Ballet's rendition of Romeo & Juliet when it opens Friday, May 1 at 8pm. Show times continue throughout the next week, with matinee and evening performances on May 2, May 3, May 5, May 6, May 7, May 9 and May 10. The San Francisco Ballet Company is one of the most world renowned dance performance troupes in the nation with a very robust spring and summer schedule. As America's oldest ballet companies, the most popular performances are always annual staples like Swan Lake and Nutcracker. Since 1933 the San Francisco Ballet has been entertaining audiences young and old with their dedication to the dance, and this year's ensemble features another young, spirited cast of performers who are sure to take your breath away. Just minutes from Union Square, the San Francisco's location offers great Civic Center views and an array of dining options in Hayes Valley to enjoy before you stay. Plus, with its close proximity to downtown you'll be tucked away in bed after the two hour performance before you know it!
