About This Special Event

Join San Francisco Performances for a festive evening and celebrate the opening of our 39th Season.

This black-tie optional evening will feature cocktails; a performance with jazz trumpeter Sean Jones, jazz violinist Regina Carter, trombonist Robin Eubanks and tenor Nicholas Phan as the narrator; seated dinner; and fund-a-need drive. The Gala concert will feature Jones’ reimagined, jazz-infused version of Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat (The Soldier’s Tale). Based on a Russian folktale about the choice between greed and happiness, L’Histoire tells the story of a soldier’s encounter with the devil.

All proceeds from the gala benefit San Francisco Performances’ education and outreach programs.
