Widely considered to be one of the top three ballet companies in America, San Francisco Ballet invites you to attend three performances from its 2014 season in the opulent War Memorial Opera House. This package allows you to see some of the most exciting dance performances in the country, some of them being staged for the first time ever. Your SF Ballet experience begins with the season opener, Giselle. One the greatest romantic ballets in the classical repertory, this is the heartbreaking tale of a peasant girl with a fragile heart, a passion for dancing and a weakness for a man who belongs to someone else. Next, you'll attend a program of three ballets that includes an exciting world premiere by Val Caniparoli, as well as encore presentations of two critically acclaimed works from the 2013 season. The final performance is Cinderella, Christopher Wheeldon's magical new production of the fairy tale ballet that was so popular last year it's been brought back for another round. Please see the full event description for more details on the performances and schedule. Learn More
KaHulaHou, a men’s hula competition which premiered in 2008, is returning for a second round of no-holds-barred hula. In this event, entertainment and showmanship are the focus, and winning
teams are selected by the audience using a noise meter to gauge applause and cheers. Only two rules are enforced upon the competitors: “Keep it Hawaiian,” and “Keep it Entertaining.”
The structure of the event is unique in the world of hula competition: one by one, each of the four competing teams will challenge another in dance “bouts,” with the winners of each bout continuing to compete until only one group remains. KaHulaHou contestants are not restricted on the format of hula they present: competitors can choose to perform classic dances (accompanied by traditional percussion instruments and chanting) or contemporary hula (accompanied by Western instruments and melodic singing). Unlike other hula competitions, in which panels of experts serve as judges of technical categories, KaHulaHou performances are judged exclusively by the audience, based primarily on their entertainment quality. In another twist on the traditional hula competition, KaHulaHou features only male dancers.
The contestants for the KaHulaHou 2010 Battle Division are:
- The Men of Manawaiopuna from Federal Way, WA, under the direction of Kumu Hula Kamaile Hamada
- The Men of Hālau Hula ‘O Walea from Markham, Ontario, Canada, under the direction of Kumu Hula Joy Walea Emalani Corpuz
- The Men of Kaleo‘onalani from San Diego, CA, under the direction of Kumu Hula Siaosi and Ida Veimau
- The Men of the Academy of Hawaiian Arts from Oakland, CA, under the direction of Kumu Hula Mark Keali‘i Ho‘omalu
