California Ballet at San Diego International Airport, Lindbergh Field


For those of you who may not be aware, the San Diego Regional Airport Authority invited us to utilize one of the display areas at Lindbergh Field for an exhibition of our choosing! California Ballet gladly accepted, and we decided to share our rich history in ballet costumes with the people of San Diego. The results were fabulous!


We have several displays, each with costumes and photos, renderings and informative explanations that document the process of building costumes and lets you see the finished product right before your eyes.

It’s also a tribute to a woman who dedicated her life to dance in San Diego as well as the California Ballet Company, and designed and made many of the Company’s costumes that we’ve all come to know and love: Flora Jennings Small. Flora served California Ballet in so many different ways: President of the Board of Trustees, donor, costume designer, loving company mom. It’s only fitting that San Diego should have the chancer&jrendering3 to understand the amount of work that she put into the tutus, tunics, and tights.

So we invite all of you to come down to the airport and see this wonderful display that is being viewed by an international crowd! It’s been splendidly put together by members of our staff, in conjunction with the Airport Authority, and it’s only on view for a limited time. It’s a great chance to see what kind of work goes into building the costumes for a show, and understand where some of your donations from the Season 43 fundraiser will inevitable end up.


There is a special reception being held at the airport on Thursday, May 6, 2010 from 3:30pm to 4:30pm. Parking will be validated at the reception, so it’s a chance to see the display without having to pay for airport parking. The display is in the Terminal 2 Baggage Level, East Hallway. If you’re interested in attending, be sure to R.S.V.P. with Diane Grosman at (858) 560-6741.
