The Bay Area’s hottest holiday ticket, The Christmas Ballet, makes its annual visit with a perfect gift for audience members of all ages. Smuin Ballet’s snow-filled extravaganza boasts everything from ballet, tap, and jazz to a wealth of other dances and music drawn from holiday traditions from around the world.
Called “an ode to holiday mischief” by 7×7 Magazine and “an effervescent bauble” by the San Francisco Chronicle, this enormously popular celebration includes gorgeous traditional ballet danced to Handel, Bach, and familiar carols (the Classical Christmas) along with contemporary pieces set to beloved pop tunes by Louis Armstrong, Harry Connick Jr., and Elvis (the Cool Christmas). This year features two world premieres: Choreographer in Residence Amy Seiwert’s ballet performed to Leonard Bernstein’s sweeping version of “Carol of the Bells,” and Ballet Master Amy London’s cheery.
