Smuin Ballet breaks the boundaries of traditional dance with this evening of vibrant, innovative works from some of the Bay Area's most exciting choreographers. Choreographer Garrett Ammon unleashes his own take on Tchaikovsky's iconic score in Serenade for Strings, using movement to reflect the composition's intensity and precision. In Objects of Curiosity, Smuin's choregrapher-in-residence Amy Seiwert explores the tensions between desire and restraint, pairing them with a delicate score by Philip Glass and Foday Musa Suso that mirrors her study on stage. The evening concludes with Frankie and Johnny, Michael Smuin's passionate tribute to the legendary Gene Kelly, danced to a soundtrack of some of the biggest names in Latin and mambo music. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Rita Moreno has appeared on stage, television and in concert and film for more than 40 years. She is the only female to have won all four of the most prestigious show-business awards – the Oscar, Emmy, Tony and Grammy – an achievement that is noted in the Guinness Book of World Records. The Oscar was for her performance as Anita in the 1962 motion picture “West Side Story.” The two Emmys were for a 1977 variety appearance on “The Muppet Show” and for a dramatic guest appearance on “The Rockford Files” in 1978. The Tony was for her 1973 triumph on Broadway as Googie Gomez in “The Ritz.” And, the Grammy was for her 1972 performance on “The Electric Company” album for children, which was based on the long-running television show of the same name.
Among her most recent projects are performances in “Cosby Mystery Series,” the highly acclaimed HBO series “Oz,” Anne Meara’s “After Play,” and Circle Repertory’s production of “Size of the World.” In 2002 Moreno appeared with the San Francisco Symphony in a production of “Candide.”
