“In brief: Thank you!”

The Cal Performances 2022–23 season opened all the way back in September 2022 with Miami City Ballet performing Balanchine’s dazzling creation Jewels and ended a week ago with our final performance, a recital by the singular soprano Nina Stemme and pianist Magnus Svensson. Over the course of this season, highlights have included a UC Berkeley campus-wide residency with William Kentridge and the US premiere of his work SIBYL; a thoughtful look at “Human and Machine” through our robust Illuminations programming, which culminated last month in our interactive Human & Machine Song Contest; more than 20 premieres across many genres; expanded opportunities that engaged UC Berkeley students; and so much more! Before we fully turn the page to our highly anticipated 2023–24 season, we wanted to shine a light on some of the memorable moments for both our audiences and our artists from the past year. Thank you to all who made this season as special as it was!
