An Evening with San Francisco Ballet and Viansa Sonoma

Join us for an Italian-inspired evening, in honor of Shakespeare’s iconic Romeo and Juliet. Pour a glass for a guided tasting of two handpicked wines with Chris Sebastiani, General Manager of Viansa Sonoma, and special guests from San Francisco Ballet. From Tuscany to Verona, join us to learn about crafting wines and choreographing a tragic production, followed by a live Q&A and 72-hour access to view the classic ballet from the comfort of your own home.

About Romeo & Juliet:

Shakespeare's tragic tale of star-crossed lovers comes to life with passionate dancing, spine-tingling swordsmanship, and stunning scenery and costume designs evoking Renaissance Italy. An emotional and poignant tale of young love and loss set to the celebrated Prokofiev score, Helgi Tomasson's Romeo & Juliet is one of SF Ballet's greatest showpieces.
