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

It was a rare opportunity to hear great musicians and we enjoyed the concert very much. The whole concert series looked very impressive. Our only concerns were: (a) The introduction was too long, too personal and mostly unnecessary. (b) There was noise from another event taking place next door (a low level thumping) that interfered somewhat with our enjoyment of the music. We would recommend only using that venue if there is no other event booked.
Quotes & Highlights
“I admire [Sachdev’s] ability to touch the spirit of the raga he performs and also to move the listeners emotionally with his pure and classical approach." —Ravi Shankar
" … haunting … the sound of his flute rings with an indescribable purity." —The New York Times
G.S. Sachdev is recognized worldwide as one of the premier performers of the bansuri, the traditional Indian flute. The depth of emotion he evokes from a simple length of bamboo is truly awe-inspiring. This music is handed down from master to student, generation to generation. With Sachdev’s superb technical artistry, powerful devotion to the Indian Classical idiom and profound love for his instrument, he has carved out a place for the bansuri as a beautiful exponent of Indian music. Swapan Chaudhuri’s music is the spontaneous expression of his powerful emotions and his deep knowledge of tabla. It is undoubtedly through his clarity and elegance of performance, both as an accompanist and as a soloist, that he has achieved such notoriety throughout the world as a true master of tabla.
