Humanities West presents a wide-ranging series of lectures and performances encompassing the fine arts, social history, music, politics, and philosophy of the arts. Since 1983 these interdisciplinary programs have been designed to entertain and educate diverse audiences in an effort to illuminate and elevate the human spirit through exploration of the many sources of modern culture.
Each season Humanities West presents a number of programs in which leading scholars and artists present lectures, performances, readings and discussions to audiences in San Francisco's Marines' Memorial Theatre. These one- or two-day events represent an opportunity unique not only to the Bay Area, but also to the entire United States. In cooperation with other institutions, such as the Mechanic's Institute Library and the Commonwealth Club of San Francisco, additional public lectures and panels are presented to further expand upon program topics.
Lamplighters Music Theatre
Lamplighters Music Theatre was founded in 1952 to produce the comic operas of librettist W.S. Gilbert and composer Arthur Sullivan, and is now recognized as one of the world’s pre-eminent Gilbert & Sullivan companies. The Lamplighters’ repertoire includes all the surviving works of these creative geniuses, as well as comic operas and classic musicals by other composers that exemplify their artistic vision. The hallmarks of a Lamplighters production are lavish costumes and sets, live orchestra, excellent comic acting, and gorgeous unamplified singing that showcases the beauty and purity of the human voice.Donate
San Francisco is a city built on art.
A city where the Stock Exchange boasts a Diego Rivera mural, where the first art school opened only 20 years after the Gold Rush, where the Beats emerged from the counterculture to transform an entire generation.
A love of the arts may run deep in our city, but the arts don’t stay alive by themselves. They need support. They need audiences. And more than ever, they need a home.
The Presidio Theatre provides a community-oriented space for the performing arts in an increasingly expensive city. We rely on the generous support of people like you to continue on our mission.
San Francisco Performances
San Francisco Performances has been a leader in the Bay Area cultural scene since our founding in 1979. We have introduced hundreds of classical music, jazz and contemporary dance artists to audiences, including world-renowned performers like Yo-Yo Ma, the Juilliard String Quartet, Philip Glass, and the Paul Taylor Dance Company. With a strong curatorial vision, great artistic taste and adventurous programming, we are the city's premier presenter of intimate concerts, solo recitals and dance.
San Francisco Performances also provides opportunities for audiences – from those who attend our concerts, to public school students who encounter music and dance for the very first time – to engage personally with artists and gain a deeper understanding of their work.
Quality, intimacy, access and enrichment—these are the hallmarks of San Francisco Performances. We seek out the world's great artists and present them in intimate venues where audiences can connect more deeply with the art.
