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

Amazing! Just when you thought they have reached the limits of physics and human capability, they pull off one more stretch, or one more leap, or one more something or another that just blows you away. Makes Cirque Soleil look like the junior league. Loved it! Will go again next year, and will bring friends. Great for kids too!
Direct from China, the Peking Acrobats — the largest and most acclaimed group of its kind — have for more than 50 years held audiences spellbound with vibrant presentations of their ancient folk art. The performance features live musical accompaniment from an accomplished Chinese ensemble, and promises to range "from the seemingly impossible to the virtually unbelievable" (Los Angeles Times).
