Meet the artist INTERVIEWS
San Francisco Ballet’s Meet the Artist pre-performance talks are back in the Opera House for the 2023 Repertory Season! Join us before every Friday evening and Sunday matinee performance for an informative talk featuring artists and choreographers in conversation with a moderator.
Meet the Artist interviews take place in the orchestra level one hour before the performance starts. Open seating in the orchestra level, but a performance ticket for that date is required to enter the Opera House to attend Meet the Artist interviews.
