Sondheim is at his bloody best in Sweeney Todd, his macabre masterpiece about a barbaric barber and an even more beastly baker. Set in London, the musical tells the tale of the title character, who, after being banished on false charges, returns to the city to exact his revenge. Teaming up with local pie shop proprietress Mrs. Lovett, Todd opens a barbershop in which he slits the throats of customers and she bakes them into pies to get rid of the evidence. A legendary smash in 1979, this darkly comic show won eight Tony Awards while The New York Times gushed that it contained "more artistic energy, creative personality and plain excitement" than a dozen average musicals. Recently adapted by Tim Burton into a hit movie with Johnny Depp, Sweeney Todd now comes to Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts in a vibrant production directed by Robert Kelley. Learn More

I have been attending Smuin Ballet shows for 10 years now and have never been disappointed. This was another fabulous show. For those that 'think' they don't like ballet, try Smuin. The dancers are not only graceful and fluid, but also athletic...continued
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 O_bjects 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.
