A big donation from the Frys. Also a bit about the current performances of Giselle.

From the San Jose Mercury News.

Pizarro: Frys clan gives lift to Ballet San Jose

When it comes to Ballet San Jose, the Frys have it.

The season opened Thursday with the premiere of ``Giselle,'' and it was accompanied by a pair of invitation-only dinners held by the Frys, longtime ballet supporters and owners of Fry's Electronics.

Ballet board member Shellie McLean Fry and David Fry hosted a pre-show dinner at Paolo's on opening night Thursday, with a guest list that included board members, a few dancers and executive director Dennis Nahat. On Friday, Fry's CEO John Fry, also the ballet's board president, held a caviar-and-roast beef buffet for nearly 200 people at the Fairmont Hotel's Club Regent.

REVIEW
'Giselle' demands much, and Ballet San Jose delivers
Janice Berman, Special to The Chronicle

Saturday, November 18, 2006

"Giselle" returned to Ballet San Jose Thursday night, after an absence of a dozen years, with a stealth star: Iñaki Urlezaga, of the Royal Ballet of London. Cast opposite Karen Gabay's richly expressive Giselle, Urlezaga arrived under the radar, his guest appearance in the role of Albrecht not announced because, with current security restrictions, it wasn't certain that he'd be allowed to enter the country in time.
