A gleeful romp through some of Broadway's most beloved numbers and two exciting world premieres will take center stage as Smuin Ballet closes out its 20th anniversary season with XXcentric. Choreographed by the company's late, great founder Michael Smuin, Dancin' With Gershwin explores the evolution and reinvention of American dance, with a little help from the Great White Way. The world-premiere ballet But now I must rest comes from Smuin choreographer-in-residence Amy Seiwert and draws inspiration from the lush music of Cesária Évora, aka the Queen of Morna. The program's other world-premiere piece, choreographer Val Caniparoli's Tutto Eccetto il Lavandino (everything but the kitchen sink), blends the music of Vivaldi and the company's high-energy athleticism with wit and reflective beauty.

Quotes & Highlights
“Sizzling, drenched in passion and shamelessly entertaining… it explodes into mambo madness!” —San Francisco Chronicle
Frankie & Johnny brings the magic of mambo to the ballet. A bar room tragedy, a lover’s vengeance, romance gone wrong – it’s sexy, passionate and action-packed. The acclaimed Chants d’Auvergne, set to Joseph Canteloube’s French folksongs, provides a beautiful balance. And for the first time ever, Smuin Ballet presents the work of world-renowned choreographer Eliot Feld, with the West Coast premiere of Pacific Dances set to the enchanting music of Hawaiian slack key guitar.
