1:00 PM Vivaldi's 'The Four Seasons' & 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' Southern California Ballet presents an afternoon of glorious ballet with harmonious masterpieces by Antonio Vivaldi and Felix Mendelssohn to benefit needs and merit-based scholarships.

Opening the afternoon is Vivaldi's iconic work "The Four Seasons," a world premiere of choreography by Martha Leebolt and Tobias Batley using the 2012 recomposition by neoclassical German composer Max Richter. Ms. Leebolt and Mr. Batley, award winning dancers and former principal dancers with Northern Ballet in Leeds, England, enjoyed outstanding careers as dance partners and interpreters and will assume co-artistic directorship of SCB in September 2017.

The feature ballet is "A Midsummer Night's Dream," choreographed by Sylvia Palmer-Zetler to music composed by Felix Mendelssohn for Shakespeare's time-honored play. The story centers on the magical intertwining of humans and fairies in the forest, and is as romantic and classical as it is playful. This whimsical drama is danced by Southern California Ballet company and academy dancers with guest dancers Shawn Burgess, Vincent Padilla, Jeremy Power and actress Kenda Vance.

"A Midsummer Night's Dream" is one of Ms. Palmer-Zetler's most noteworthy productions and a fitting tribute to her 30 years as Artistic Director of Southern California Ballet. A celebratory gathering will be held after the performance to introduce Ms. Leebolt and Mr. Batley and applaud Ms. Palmer-Zetler's legacy.

Admission/Cost: $16 - $38

3:00 PM Miso Making Workshop In this hands-on workshop, you will learn all about miso, a magical fermented bean paste that originated in Japan many centuries ago. Miso is full of umami and is used to flavor everything from soups to marinades and salad dressings, stir-fries, to eggs.

Cool weather is ideal for making miso, when the air is relatively free of contaminating microorganisms. Miso prepared during cold months will be ready by the following November, after the summer heat subsides and fall breezes set in.

• Learn: We will talk about the history of miso, its many different forms, and then make a large batch using various legumes.
• Taste: You'll get to taste various misos to understand the fermentation process.
• Do: You'll get to pack a mason jar full of miso to take home (but you'll have to wait almost a year to eat it)!
• Eat: Then we'll enjoy one of the most popular miso dishes-- homemade soup!

Admission/Cost: $32.50 - $35

8:00 PM Stage: Red Velvet The Old Globe stages "Red Velvet," a stirring drama that transports audiences to the turbulent backstage world of London's Theatre Royal in the early 1800s.

Edmund Kean, the greatest actor of his generation, can't go on tonight as Othello, and his company is in disarray. A young American actor named Ira Aldridge arrives to step into the role—but no black man has ever played Othello on the English stage.

His groundbreaking performance upends stage tradition and changes the lives of everyone involved.

Lolita Chakrabarti's multi-award-winning play uncovers the fascinating true story of a pivotal figure in theater history. Visionary director Rachel Chavkin returns to The Old Globe with a stunningly theatrical production of a play that the London Telegraph called "informative, entertaining, and thought-provoking."

Admission/Cost: $34 - $98
