Not everything works in McVicar’s visual scheme, directed here by Leah Hausman, with choreography by Lynne Page and mid-19th century costumes (in Troy) and ethnic finery (in Carthage) by Moritz Junge. A few scenes feel static, others look cluttered. The initial impact of that giant horse is diminished in repeat appearances. A large disc suspended over the Act IV ballet resembles an antique satellite dish. But even the clunkiest scenes are swept up in the grandeur of Berlioz’s mercurial score. Conducted for maximum dramatic impact by former S.F. Opera music director Donald Runnicles, Sunday’s performance gathered power as it proceeded, registering its innovations in every scene. From its triumphal marches to the bucolic Royal Hunt and Storm, the offstage ensembles and the brass writing that seems to anticipate Wagner, one could only marvel at the music’s infinite variety.

Raised in Newtown, Va., where his parents run a hunt club, Bates says he was “the black sheep.” He composed a piano sonata as a teen and went off to Juilliard in 1995, studying with master orchestrators David Del Tredici and John Corigliano. The latter’s influence was formative; Corigliano taught that orchestral works should concern themselves with big ideas — that the details of a score should flow from the macrocosm. Awards for composition started coming in, one taking Bates in 2003 to Rome, where he explored the club scene, as he did in San Francisco, after he enrolled in the Ph.D. program at UC Berkeley’s Center for New Music and Audio Technology in 2001. Always, his classical and DJ-ing activities “were disjunct parts of my life,” he says. Yet connections emerged: The process of mixing, cross-fading and transforming materials in a three-hour club set bears a relationship to the ways in which Bates stealthily transforms orchestral themes in his large-scale works, blurring and melting sonorities, building and linking landscapes.

TheatreWorks’ lease in the Menlo Park industrial park on Hamilton Court is on a year-to-year basis. Santora says he was looking for something “more stable and long term.”. Recognizing that affordable office and workspaces are difficult for nonprofits to find and retain in Silicon Valley, where costs are among the highest in the nation, the Sobrato Family Foundation converted three Silicon Valley office business parks into multi-tenant nonprofit centers. Besides the one on Twin Dolphin Drive in Redwood Shores, the others are in San Jose and Milpitas. The Redwood Shores complex already houses the Strive for College Collaborative, SVForum, Notre Dame de Namur University, My New Red Shoes and Casa of San Mateo County. The TheatreWorks grant of $769,158 is by far the largest in both value and space occupied.
