The ballet. We’d like to go all the time, but it’s hard to pull the trigger on $100 tickets for seats where we can barely tell a tiara from a tutu (binoculars, anyone?).
Lucky for us, the San Francisco Ballet launched The List.
This last-minute discounted ticket program was started for ballet fans ages 21 to 39. Just sign up online and every Monday you’ll get an email telling you about any available tickets for that week’s shows, all of which are a mere $25. Plus, you’ll even receive invites to exclusive events like intimate post-performance cast parties.
After you join, here’s what to keep your eyes on for the rest of the 2014 season:
Now to April 13 More modern dance than classical ballet, the Shostakovich Trilogy features a whimsical set by George Tsypin, artistic director of the opening ceremony at the Sochi Olympics.
April 4 to 15 The envelope-pushing choreographer Mark Morris brings Maelstrom home, 20 years after first showcasing the ethereal work at the SF Ballet.
April 29 to May 10 Liam Scarlett--the 26-year-old Brit who choreographed his first piece for the Royal Ballet School at age 11--has his world premiere on the opera-house stage.
