Comprised of the War Memorial Opera House, Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall, Herbst Theatre, The Green Room and Harold L. Zellerbach Rehearsal Hall, the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center (SFWMPAC) is a landmark cultural institution owned and operated by the City and County of San Francisco.

These uniquely beautiful performing arts venues with a combined capacity of almost 7000 seats make SFWMPAC a primary destination for world class entertainment in the Bay Area.

Home to the San Francisco Ballet and San Francisco Opera, the War Memorial Opera House hosts San Francisco's most dynamic classical performance.

The music of the San Francisco Symphony displays the unparalleled acoustics of Davies Symphony Hall, which also hosts numerous outside concerts and lectures.

The Herbst Theatre has more than 200 shows presented on its stage each year by many of the Bay Area's premier cultural organizations, including San Francisco Performances and the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, and The Green Room is host to more than 200 functions and 40,000 guests annually.

A cornerstone of San Francisco's historic Civic Center, our stately venues are available for rent and host a wide variety of performances and concerts, professional filming and photography, and receptions, dinners and celebrations.
