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
Reviews & Ratings
"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.
