Alonzo King LINES Ballet
World Premiere Collaboration with San Francisco Opera Adler Fellows
April 16 - 25, 2010

Alonzo King LINES Ballet is a celebrated contemporary ballet company that has been guided since 1982 by its uniquely global artistic vision. Collaborating with noted composers, musicians, and visual artists, Alonzo King creates works that draw on a diverse set of deeply rooted cultural traditions and imbue classical ballet with new expressive potential.

This season's collaboration is with the San Francisco Opera Adler Fellows. Founded in 1977, Adler Fellowships are performance-oriented residencies for the most advanced young singers and coach/accompanists. Under the guidance of San Francisco Opera General Director David Gockley and Opera Center Director Sheri Greenawald, the Adler Fellowship Program offers intensive individual training and roles of increasing importance in San Francisco Opera's main-stage season. Each year, a few exceptionally gifted singers from Merola Opera Program, chosen from a pool of over 800 candidates, are invited to continue their education as Adler Fellows.
