Smuin Ballet breaks the boundaries of traditional dance with this evening of vibrant, innovative works from some of the Bay Area's most exciting choreographers. Choreographer Garrett Ammon unleashes his own take on Tchaikovsky's iconic score in Serenade for Strings, using movement to reflect the composition's intensity and precision. In Objects of Curiosity, Smuin's choregrapher-in-residence Amy Seiwert explores the tensions between desire and restraint, pairing them with a delicate score by Philip Glass and Foday Musa Suso that mirrors her study on stage. The evening concludes with Frankie and Johnny, Michael Smuin's passionate tribute to the legendary Gene Kelly, danced to a soundtrack of some of the biggest names in Latin and mambo music. Learn More

What a great evening. Garrison Keillor took the stage for a full two and a quarter hours without a break. His voice is just one of the most soothing sounds in the world to me, and his stories are so witty and charming. I found his songs surprisingly soulful, and on the one occasion when he sang bass, I was just blown away. I didn't know he could sing like that! A little bit of his material was actually a little risque (well, for Garrison Keillor anyway) - wasn't expecting that! I guess there's some of that stuff you just can't say on Prairie Home Companion. All in all, a delightful evening.

Indeed, a true master storyteller. This was a performance with music, love songs and stories. Unpretentious.I felt quite touched and delighted.
The only downsides- 20 or so min. too long and not geared at teens much. Though my kids love listening...continued
