SF Ballet Nite Out | SF Ballet Home

Attend Nite Out and Win a $500 Gift Certificate to HUGO BOSS!

San Francisco Ballet invites the LGBT* community to The Little Mermaid Nite Out event on Friday, March 26. Don’t miss the U.S. premiere of John Neumeier’s visually stunning work of dance theater. Both sensual and surreal, this modern interpretation of the Hans Christian Andersen tale of the same name, is a heart-wrenching story of conflicted love and loss.

After the performance, mingle with new friends at an exclusive hosted cocktail party with cocktails featuring Swan’s Neck Vodka and light hors d’oeuvres, plus great music, ambience, and views of City Hall from the Dress Circle Foyer. And, one lucky patron will walk away with a $500 gift certificate to HUGO BOSS located at 845 Market Street on the first floor of the Westfield San Francisco Centre. Come see some of the Ballet’s dancers dressed in Hugo Boss and hopefully add some new threads to your wardrobe!
