Upcoming Events in Our Forty-Third Season



As our season ramps up to full speed, exciting things are brewing at the California Ballet Company!





Kicking off our forty-third season is this year’s Annual Meeting and Awards Ceremony, being held this Sunday at the California Ballet Center. If you’re in town, be sure to stop by for food, fun, and dancing! The festivities begin at 11:30am with the Annual Meeting and Awards Ceremony.


Attendees will have the opportunity to view a special exhibit covering California Ballet’s past, present, and future, and take a look at vintage props and costumes, historical photos, and vintage yearbooks.  A limited supply of our vintage yearbooks will also be available for purchase so that our friends may take home a piece of California Ballet history.

Attendees will also have a chance to bid on some very exciting items in our silent auction!



The formal meeting and awards ceremony will be followed by a scrumptious catered meal, which will be provided by The French Gourmet. Fine French cuisine and even finer company, what more can you ask for? The cost of the meal is $25 for adults, $15 for children.

Following the meal, our California Ballet friends and family will be treated to an intimate performance by dancers from the professional and junior companies. All will be delighted by Sneak preview performances from our upcoming season, as well as a musical number by junior company dancers which proves that our dancers can do more than just dance!


If you’re in town, don’t miss this event! It’s going to be an afternoon of fun, food, friends, and dance!



Late in September, the California Ballet Textiles in Motion exhibit, at the San Diego International Airport’s West Terminal, will be removed and the costumes put away for another day. This exhibit has been a beautiful addition to our fair city’s cultural exhibits, and it would be a shame to miss it! Take a day to head over to the West Terminal for a walkthrough of the process of costuming a ballet, as well as a tribute to one of San Diego’s greatest costume mistresses: Flora Jennings Small.




October will bring chills and thrills as California Ballet hosts an all-inclusive Halloween Experience at the California Ballet Theatre West.
Ballet Bites – A Taste of Transylvania will be an evening of fine food and spine-tingling entertainment as we present a catered meal followed by a performance in our intimate Theatre West of our rarely seen Romanian Rhapsodies and our one-act, spine-tingling Dracula! Children will have a chance to have their picture taken with the Brides of Dracula and meet the dancers. It will be a family-fun evening to remember. Seating is limited, so be sure to get your tickets soon. Adults are $45-$35; Children are $25; Dinner is $50.




Of course, December brings our perennial Holiday favorite, The Nutcracker! Join Clara and her Nutcracker Prince as they battle the evil Rat King, travel through the Kingdom of Snow, and meet the Sugarplum Fairy in the Kingdom of the Sweets. It’s a magical evening that has delighted children and adults alike for 30 years! This year’s performances will take place at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts December 11-12, and at the San Diego Civic Theatre December 18-21. Join us, as we continue this fabulous Holiday tradition!
