The 50th Anniversary Spring Repertory Season will highlight all that the community has cherished about Oakland Ballet over the past five decades. On May 23, the Five Decades of Dance repertory performance, devised by Artistic Director Graham Lustig, honors the legacy created by founding Artistic Director, Ronn Guidi with selections of beloved works from the Diaghilev Ballet Russes era, Eugene Loring, Alonzo King, and more. This program will also celebrate the next 50 years with new works created by renowned Bay Area choreographers whose careers were shaped by their work with the company.
