Since 1965, the Oakland Ballet Company has gained international recognition for its deferential nods to the classics and its innovative breaks with tradition. After closing briefly in 2006, the company was revived the next year at the hands of a new artistic director, Graham Lustig, who on Saturday, Apr. 27, joins the rest of the company in hosting their annual fundraiser gala at the Oakland Kaiser Center (300 Lakeside Dr., Oakland). The evening will be emceed by Cheryl Jennings of ABC7 and includes a champagne and hors d'oeuvres reception, a preview of the company's spring program, dessert with the dancers, and a silent auction -- which includes the chance to appear in the company's December production of The Nutcracker. 7-9:30 p.m., $100 and up. 510-894-3132 or
