Opening Night Gala

A very special season is upon us. Kick it off with a bang—and a glamorous one at that. Celebrate at the Opening Night Gala, a black-tie event complete with a pre-concert sparkling wine hour and a star-studded concert featuring Bonnie Raitt and Yuja Wang performing alongside the San Francisco Symphony led by Michael Tilson Thomas. With the night in full swing, the revelry continues at the after-party. Wrap up the night in the glamorous, custom-designed tented pavilion with entertainment, dancing, cocktails, and treats from San Francisco’s finest restaurants.

Five unique experiences—one unforgettable night. Concert tickets include the pre-concert sparkling wine reception and the after-party. Four Dinner Packages are available, which include a formal dinner, prime seats for the performance, and the after-party.
