“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.
