Performances at the Herbst Theatre, located within walking distance of San Francisco City Hall, the San Francisco Opera and the San Francisco Symphony, have some stiff competition. Undaunted, the theater lures first-class classical musicians in search of a more personal performance space.
The San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center covers seven and one-half acres in San Francisco???s Civic Center Historic District. The Center is comprised of the War Memorial Opera House, the War Memorial Veterans Building (including the Herbst Theatre and Green Room), Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall, Harold L. Zellerbach Rehearsal Hall and the Memorial Court.
