Across the street from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and abutting a lovely urban garden, this performing arts complex schedules interdisciplinary art exhibitions, touring and local dance troupes, music, film programs, and contemporary theater events. You can depend on the quality of the productions at Yerba Buena. Film buffs often come here to check out the San Francisco Cinematheque (www.sfcinematheque.org), which showcases experimental film and digital
media. And dance enthusiasts can attend concerts by a roster of city companies that perform here including Smuin Ballet/SF (www.smuinballet.org), ODC/San Francisco (www.odcdance.org), the Margaret Jenkins Dance Company, and Alonzo King's Lines Ballet (www.linesballet.org). The Lamplighters (www.lamplighters.org), an alternative opera that specializes in Gilbert and Sullivan, also performs here.
