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

Rhythm reigns supreme in Michael Smuin’s first world premiere of the season, Obrigado, Brazil (Thank You, Brazil). Set to vibrant South American music by Yo-Yo Ma and an all-star ensemble of Brazilian musicians, it’s an exotic journey through classical, samba and bossa nova beats.
Smuin Ballet’s in-house choreographer, the critically acclaimed Amy Seiwert, will present her eagerly anticipated world premiere of Revealing the Bridge.
Rounding out this exciting program is the return of Shinju, one of Michael Smuin’s most powerful works based on an 18th century Japanese play about two star-crossed lovers.
