Operating as an opera ballet since 1933, The San Francisco Ballet Company is one of the oldest ballet schools of its time. In 1938, Coppelia, the first full length production of the company was launched by its first ever choreographer William Christensen and in 1944 the company premiered the famous Nutcracker which has become a yearly national holiday tradition in the country. The first decade for the ballet school was marked by a number of tours especially in the Far East and a debut performance at the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in 1956. In the 1970s the company launched Cindrella, a co-production by Christensen and Michael Smuin. With the launch of such amazing productions, the company was heading towards unbounded success in the future.
