Her parents named her "Star" ... and with a grandfather, uncles and a father all famous musicians, how could she be anything but? The star in question is Estrella Morente, who has since exceeded every prediction of success to become one of the greatest flamenco vocalists alive today. Celebrated for her fresh approach to flamenco and popular Spanish songs, Morente has a supple and evocative voice, summoning heart-broken regret and boundless joy with equal ease (and often within the same song). So stirring is her voice, that director Pedro Almodóvar included it on the soundtrack to his Oscar-nominated film, Volver. Experience her intense rhythms and moody melodies -- and the accompaniment of a dazzling flamenco guitarist -- when Morente performs live at Cal Performances' Zellerbach Hall. Learn More

Celebrating 50 years of peerless dance making—that first tour was conducted from a station wagon and a U-Haul trailer!—the Joffrey Ballet continues to astonish world audiences with its unique blend of brilliant technique and the quintessential American spirit. The Berkeley program features Twyla Tharp's "Deuce Coupe" (1973), the choreographer's carefree classic about teenagers at play, set to the music of the Beach Boys; Laura Dean's "Sometimes It Snows in April," from Gerald Arpino's 1993 production of Billboards, set to the classic song by Prince; and Robert Joffrey's demure and witty "Pas des Déesses," which was featured in that first company season a half century ago.
