JUST ANNOUNCED!
Roland Petit's Carmen will feature artistic director and international dance sensation José Manuel Carreño as Don Jose on May 9 and 10. Click Here to read the press release.

 
Two masterworks — a fiery story ballet and a celebration of pure movement — by two different master dance-makers of our era, share a program of extreme contrasts and bravura dancing. Considered one of Twyla Tharp's most accomplished and striking works, In the Upper Room features a commissioned score by Philip Glass that both propels and liberates the dancers in Tharp's whirling, pulse-pounding choreography. Since its premiere in 1949, Carmen has remained one of inventive French choreographer Roland Petit's most popular ballets for its keen character studies, theatrical staging and soaring dances.

The performances of Carmen will feature live music by Symphony Silicon Valley conducted by Paul Polivnick.
