We Needed to Play . . .

We Needed to Play . . .

“. . . we needed to dance, we needed to perform.”
—SF Ballet Music Director & Principal Conductor Martin West

Our dancers, musicians, crew, and staff are working harder than ever to bring the joy of live performance and holiday cheer back to San Francisco, and we cannot wait to share the magic with you!

This return also marks the beginning of our 2022 Season, and with it, our celebration of Artistic Director and Principal Choreographer Helgi Tomasson’s near 40-year tenure with the ballet. In honor of Tomasson’s final season with SFB, we sat down with Tomasson, Interim Executive Director Danielle St.Germain-Gordon, and Music Director and Principal Conductor Martin West to learn about their excitement towards this upcoming season, as well as their experience with their artistic community over the pandemic.
