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

Writing “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy,” performing on Miles Davis’ In a Silent Way album and starting Weather Report with Wayne Shorter have already secured keyboardist-composer Joe Zawinul’s place in music history. But the visionary Austrian, who once compared jazz to boxing (“the footwork, the jab, the constant setting up and reacting to your opponent), continues the good fight of plumbing the intersection of jazz, rock, and world music with his always-fresh Zawinul Syndicate.
