Suspense and laughter share the stage in this adaptation of the popular Sherlock Holmes tale, The Hound of the Baskervilles. Two British theater vets bring their witty sensibility to this classic Victorian whodunit about an attempted murder tied to the legend of a fearsome, diabolical hound. The famous detective and his trusty sidekick Dr. Watson travel to the misty, moody moors of England's West Country where the Baskerville family patriarch has died under mysterious and chilling circumstances and his nephew and heir, Sir Henry, may be next. Is it the family curse or is it murder? Holmes is on the case! Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Smuin Ballet’s 2008 Winter Program features the return of Michael Smuin’s iconic Stabat Mater¸ choreographed to Dvorak’s music of the same title and his Duettino¸ an absolutely beautiful, virtuoso pas de deux set to Verdi opera selections. Also featured is Objects of Curiosity, a World Premiere by Smuin Protégé Program choreographer Amy Seiwert – set to music by Philip Glass and Foday Musa Suso, an effort which continues her status as an artist who “more than any other choreographer in the Bay Area is exploring the language of classicism with an almost religious belief in its eloquence, power and possibilities” (Voice of Dance).
Guest choreographer Kirk Peterson (The Eyes That Gently Touch) returns with the Premiere of his whimsical “Smuin-esque” ballet, Reinin’ In the Hurricane, set to country music legends Randy Travis, Gene Autry, k.d. lang and more. Peterson was most recently Artistic Director of the American Ballet Theatre Studio Company and was the innovative Artistic Director of Hartford Ballet for five years.
