I've been attending Smuin ballets for about 7 or 8 years and have never been disappointed. Even my husband likes them! Goldstar makes it possible to see them even more frequently with their great prices. Smuin's shows are fun; dances have humor and modern/jazzy moves/music. There's always a dance or many dances set to popular music making them very current and will have you humming on your way out. Don't miss the Spring shows!
Quotes & Highlights
- See Goldstar member reviews of Smuin Ballet's recent performance at the Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek.
The program begins as Choreographer in Residence Amy Seiwert presents her wry, quirky take on lust in Been Through Diamonds – her 7th new work for the Company. The critics have wildly acclaimed Amy’s subtle humor in this piece as well as her unexpected pairing of modern movement and Mozart. Emmy Award-winning Robert Sund’s sexy, jazzy interpretation of Carmen set to Miles Davis’ Sketches of Spain follows. The program is rounded off with a celebration of Michael Smuin’s signature Dances with Songs - a marvelous and colorful medley set to all our favorites. The piece is as fresh and entertaining today as it was in its 1994 debut.
