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

As always, the classic ballet part of the program was beautifully danced, choreographed, costumed, set and lighted. We are so privileged to have this fine professional company perform for us! Then the witty, funny, sometimes deliberately goofy, and always delightful and well danced, second half left us with enormous smiles all over our faces.

My son and I had a wonderful experience at the performance.
What a beautiful display of precision, style, and esprit.
The light meal we purchased for intermission was also excellent.
We are looking forward to seeing more of the corp.
