“It’s amazing how many people don’t know that the cemetery is laden with California history. We could do a mayors of Oakland tour, a founder’s tour, a woman’s tour, an African-American tour,” Buckley said. “I’m just picking out one piece of history — Piedmont.”. Buckley will meet tour-goers in front of the mausoleum and begin the tour there. After some time in the chapel, the tour will make its way into the grounds, stopping at grave markers of prominent Piedmonters from the mid-1800s to the early 1900s.

But for Program 1, “The Joy of Dance,” which opened the 2017 season Jan. 24, that curatorial know-how skipped town. Tomasson’s dryly academic choreography for “Haffner Symphony” (1991) met Mozart with on-the-beat movement that hammered the grand, pastoral composition into obedience. Even usually impeccable principal Maria Kochetkova looked slightly weary as she whipped around the stage in her solo, her jutting head throwing off her turns and her usually sparkling musicality seeming frayed. The ensemble, too, though dancing masterfully, could not transcend the dutiful purpose that drives “Haffner.”.
