I had something to eat ahead of time at the cafe connected to the theatre - the food was good and not too expensive

Description

“When Sinatra sings, you naturally want to dance,”  said Michael Smuin about his celebration of songs made famous by Frank Sinatra. Fly Me to the Moon is the embodiment of the smooth and stylish melodies that have inspired generations, including “The Way You Look Tonight” “That’s Life”, “The Lady is a Tramp” and more.  In startling contrast to Sinatra is Michael Smuin’s Medea, a dance of spellbinding theatrical power, weaving a story of passion, jealousy and bloodthirsty revenge. Completing the program will be a World Premiere by Smuin Ballet Choreographer-in-Residence, Amy Seiwert!  Recognized by the dance and entertainment worlds alike, Amy’s work is steadily joining the repertoires of companies across the U.S.
