An Evening of the Arts at the Lesher Center

November 08, 2017

Located in nearby Walnut Creek, the Lesher Center for the Arts boasts three separate theaters, making superlative dance, drama, and musical performances available to guests of the Lafayette Park Hotel year round. Though the heartwarming coming-of-age musical Billy Eliot finishes its run on November 11, there’s lots more in store for the rest of month. David Ives’s The Liar, ongoing through November 18, provides a fresh, modern, and uproariously funny take on Pierre Corneille’s 17th-century comedy, which pairs the urbane and witty Dorante, who cannot tell the truth, with his devoted servant, Clinton, who cannot tell a lie. On November 17 and 18, Smuin’s The Christmas Ballet will delight audiences with a medley of holiday-themed jazz, tap, and classical ballet performance. On November 19, the acclaimed Contra Costa Chamber Orchestra will present an evening of Mozart. And on November 24, 25, and 26, the Contra Costa Ballet Company will further kindle the Christmas spirit with Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, one of the world’s most beloved and enchanting ballets.
