Here is an excerpt from an e-mail dated October 31 sent to San Francisco Ballet subscribers:

"We've also added performances of Helgi Tomasson's all new production of Swan Lake on Saturday, February 28, at 8pm and Sunday, March 1, at 2pm and George Balanchine's masterpiece, Jewels on May 10, at 2pm. Only subscribers may order tickets to these added performances. As always, you receive the best seats at the best price before public sale."

These additional performances are now listed on the website performance schedule:

My credit card is cringing in terror at the thought of yet more ballet tickets :thumbsup:

It's great to see a company adding peformances, especially given the current economic situation. And we're talking about classics here, too. :thumbsup:

The SL 2/22 performance is virtually sold out (except for the crummy balcony seats; the Opera House is waaaay too big for dance; balcony is much too far away).

SL 3/1 looks like it's about 2/3 sold (excluding balcony, which is always the last to go).

Jewles 4/26 about 3/4 sold, 5/10 looks pretty bad: only about 1/4 sold, but that's toward the end of the season, so undoubtedly tickets will sell better later on, especially if the reviews are decent.

Anyway, I've done my part: got a ticket for each of the additional performances. I think I need a bailout :thumbsup:

Well, even if you don't get a bailout, I hope that the performances you attend will be a "stimulus package" for your eye and spirit.
