"Symphony in C," with music by Georges Bizet, will conclude the three-part repertory. Originally premiered in 1947 by the Paris Opéra Ballet, and by the San Francisco Ballet in 1961, "'Symphony in C' is just glorious to watch, visually stunning, with fantastic music," says Tomasson.

Finally, "Romeo & Juliet," will be brought to life for Orange County audiences. Initially created in 1994 for the company, the production features Sergei Prokofiev's score and Tomasson's choreography.

"It's a human story," Tomasson said, "so that has to come across. It's not an abstract, make-believe story or fairy tale — this could be today, anywhere."
