One of the most popular comic operas of all time, The Pirates of Penzance spins a hilarious tale of tenderhearted pirates with a soft spot for orphans and poetry, a squadron of bumbling British policemen, a bookish Major-General well-versed in everything but military matters and his bevy of beautiful maiden daughters. It was Gilbert & Sullivan's first work to premiere in the U.S. and features unforgettable melodies and tongue-twisting songs, including the crowd-pleasing favorite "I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General" and "Poor Wandering One."

David Van Ligon
Long-time company dancer David Van Ligon presents Natoma, a stunning work set to music by San Francisco-based cellist and composer Zoe Keating.
Company C also performs for the first time a work by Dennis Nahat, founder of Ballet San Jose and a fixture of American choreography. Commissioned by the Royal Swedish Ballet in 1970 and later performed by American Ballet Theater, Ontogeny is a timeless ballet set to the Pulitzer Prize-winning String Quartet No.3 by Czech-born composer Karel Husa.
Carl Fink & John Bohannon
A Modest Proposal
Company C enters groundbreaking territory with its performances of A Modest Proposal, the astonishingly creative collaboration between choreographer Carl Flink and science writer John Bohannon. A Modest Proposal was originally commissioned for Black Label Movement by the 2011 TEDx Brussels Conference.
Boléro is Anderson’s fresh, contemporary interpretation of Ravel’s famous composition. Commissioned by the Mendocino Music Festival in 2007, this ballet for ten dancers radiates the physicality, confidence and joy that are the hallmarks of Anderson’s choreography.
_Shows are traditionally about 1 hour and 45 minutes with a 20-minute intermission. Subject to change without notification.
