A heart-rending debut, a crowd-pleasing favorite and an iconic work are the highlights of Smuin Ballet's winter program XXtremes. For the first time ever in Northern California, the company will perform Jiri Kylian's acclaimed Return to a Strange Land, set to music by Czech composer Leos Janacek. Return expresses the journey from loss to hope with rare elegance and astonishing form. Brought back by popular demand, the company will also dance Dear Miss Cline, a buoyant and colorful romp through the music of Patsy Cline. Choreographed by the company's own Amy Seiwert, the piece features 10 Nashville tunes, including the immortal "Walkin' After Midnight." Finally, Smuin Ballet will pay tribute to its late, great founder Michael Smuin by performing his Carmina Burana. Set to the pulse-thumping cantata by Carl Orff, the choreography of Carmina Burana exemplifies the rhythm, speed and syncopation for which Smuin Ballet is beloved. Learn More

We just saw it the other day - and we all loved it! Very cute play with beautiful costumes and great performers. Even thought it was mainly kids, we all feel they did an amazing job! We had 3 girls ages 5 to 9 and all love it. Highly recommend it for any family.
On a snowy evening, the Bat Queen's kidnapping of a little bunny disrupts the forest creatures' Wintertime celebration. With the help of the Magician and a beautiful Rose Maiden, the bunny is restored to its family. Santa, the Snow Maiden and an enchanting Fairy treat you to the magical finale of an exquisite celebration that includes beautiful flowers and bright Chinese dolls who come alive to help celebrate the bunny's return.
