San Diego Ballet - Giselle

Closed May 22, 2022

San Diego's own early history forms the setting of this storied supernatural ballet, updated from its usual 19th Century European forests to Spanish Colonial California by the company's Artistic Director Javier Velasco. Now unfurling among pueblos and ranchos, the haunting story of a young peasant girl and her forbidden love for a nobleman is told through our own locales, yet remains as timeless as ever.

David Sedaris is a Grammy Award-nominated humorist, writer, comedian, bestselling author, and radio contributor. Much of his humor is drawn from his unconventional North Carolina upbringing, his varied stream of odd-jobs (Christmas elf at Macy's, anyone?) and plays to his self-deprecating strengths, and now often concerns his life today in France with his partner.

The elegant Balboa Theatre has seen many uses over the years, from movie theater to housing for the US Navy during WWII. Beginning in the 1980s, the building was closed for twenty years and threatened with demolition, until a multi-million dollar renovation reopened it as a community arts center and theater space in 2008. It now hosts dozens of concerts and comedians every year.
