The Ballet San Jose, revamped in 2000, is beginning its new season tonight with “Giselle”, a well-known ballet. I can’t make it, unfortunately, but wanted to pass along the info to performing arts lovers in the Bay Area.
They are also hosting a Nutcracker Black Tie Ball on December 14 at the San Jose Museum of Art, with a performance to follow at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts. I plan to be there. It should be a lot of fun.
In the spring, their major annual fundraiser, this year the Blue Suede Shoes Gala, based on their “Blue Suede Shoes” ballet, a “classic rock in a one-act ballet danced to 36 master recordings of Elvis Presley’s greatest hits”, will be held at the Fairmont.
