Diablo Ballet 

When: Nov. 18-19 2011
Price: $20-$58

Call it the little company that could: For its eighteenth season, Diablo Ballet scored a triple bill of high-profile works. Balletic and experimental, San Francisco Ballet resident choreographer Val Caniparoli examines themes of balance and imbalance in A Phoenix Story, a world premiere accompanied by cellists Daniel Reiter and Paul Rhodes. Next up is a contemporary reimagining of Michel Fokine's Le Spectre de la rose by Houston dance-maker Dominic Walsh; Le Spectre premiered in 1911, and Walsh's update is a savvy way to recognize the centenary of this beloved ballet. Rounding out the embarrassment of riches is Fluctuating Hemlines, a percussive piece by Washington Ballet artistic director Septime Webre. Diablo Ballet performs all three at three engagements on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 18-19, at LesherCenter for the Arts (1601 Civic Dr., Walnut Creek). Fri. 7:30 p.m.; Sat. 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.; $20-$58. 925-943-7469 or DiabloBallet.org
