Celebrate the magic of the Season with Smuin’s The Christmas Ballet! Called “Sheer joy!” and “The finest toast to the Season!” by the SF Chronicle, our Christmas spectacular is sure to delight family and friends. The night is anything but silent, filled with the gifted choreography of Michael Smuin and brilliant emerging choreographers. Act 1 is The Classical Ballet, majestic and inspiring with traditional masterpieces such as Exelsis, Ave Maria and Joy To The World. Act 2 is The Cool Ballet. Rejoice to the sounds of Drummer Boy, Santa Baby, It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, Christmas Tree Rock and more! Share a memorable evening that is sure to fill your heart with wonder and make you feel like a kid all over again.

And join us on December 20 for LGBTQ+ Night – a Merry & Gay rendition of our irrepressible holiday classic returns to benefit two local nonprofits: Lyric and Project Open Hand.
