SF Ballet: Romeo & Juliet
War Memorial Opera House
Civic Center/Tenderloin

Having played to sold-out houses in 2010, Helgi Tomasson’s critically acclaimed ballet adaptation of this timeless Shakespearean masterpiece returns. Two innocent youths meet by chance, relishing the discovery and passion of first love—only to be shattered by tragic twists of fate and the destructive hatred of their own families.

Critical Acclaim

The Opera House is home to the SF Opera, North America's second largest opera company, and the SF Ballet, which the New York Times calls "the most impressively diverse ballet company in America."

Pro Tip

Park nearby at the Performing Arts Garage. The entrance is on Grove St, between Franklin and Gough.


Set to one of Prokofiev’s most evocative scores, this production is filled with beautiful dance, riveting battles, and compelling drama, all amidst stunning production designs by Jens-Jacob Worsaae and lighting by Thomas R. Skelton.

“For never was a story of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo.” —William Shakespeare
