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

Catch the Mountain View appearance by the band dubbed "The Sgt. Pepper's of Kid Music" by Cookie Magazine. The Sippy Cups are currently on their new Fall from Space! mini-tour.
This season will also see the release of the band's first-ever DVD, documenting the dynamic and colorful stage-show from their acclaimed Electric Storyland album. Entitled Electric Storyland: Live at The Great American Music Hall, the DVD was recorded live at The Music Hall in December 2006, and features original favorites "Springtime Fantastic" and "I Am a Robot," along with "I Wanna Be Elated" (the Sippies' kid-friendly version of The Ramones' classic "I Wanna Be Sedated"), and plenty of the juggling, unicycling, oversized puppetry, giant balloons, streamer cannons, pogo-ing preschoolers, and other sensational live action touches for which The Sippy Cups' shows are known.
