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

Named one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” in 2010, the Bay Area’s Company C Contemporary Ballet‘s eclectic and electrifying style redefines ballet for a new generation with its dynamic and adventurous repertoire. The 2011 season opens with an emotional thrill ride from the depths of David Anderson’s soliloquy of grief, loss and hope to heart-pounding and heart-rending ballets by Maurice Causey, Daniel Ezralow, Charles Anderson and Benjamin Bowman. This program challenges the full-on athleticism of the Company and rewards audiences with breath-taking moments of galvanizing choreography, theatrical intensity and the excitement of dance pushed to its technical limits.
