Diablo Ballet’s 20th season begins Nov. 9 at the Smith Center at Ohlone College in Fremont with the Diablo Ballet premiere of “Our Waltzes” by renowned choreographer Vicente Nebrada of Ballet Nacional de Caracas.

Taking its cue from the re-emerging popularity of this distinctly Californian medium, “New Neon” will examine the ways in which neon has been repurposed — in both paintings and sculptures — to reflect the cadence and drama of the modern media-saturated cultural landscape.

Music and architecture fuse with beguiling results in this homage to architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The four-movement concerto was the centerpiece of a program that also included works by Tchaikovsky, Anton Arensky, Clarice Assad and Samuel Jones. Daugherty, an native of Iowa and three-time Grammy Award winner, often has taken his inspiration from famous figures; his compositions include the opera “Jackie O” and “Dead Elvis” for bassoon and chamber ensemble. “Fallingwater” takes the listener on a musical tour of Wright’s greatest creations. In pre-performance remarks, Daugherty said he was inspired by a visit to Taliesin, the 600-acre Wisconsin estate that Wright designed and built as his primary residence.
