A heart-rending debut, a crowd-pleasing favorite and an iconic work are the highlights of Smuin Ballet's winter program XXtremes. For the first time ever in Northern California, the company will perform Jiri Kylian's acclaimed Return to a Strange Land, set to music by Czech composer Leos Janacek. Return expresses the journey from loss to hope with rare elegance and astonishing form. Brought back by popular demand, the company will also dance Dear Miss Cline, a buoyant and colorful romp through the music of Patsy Cline. Choreographed by the company's own Amy Seiwert, the piece features 10 Nashville tunes, including the immortal "Walkin' After Midnight." Finally, Smuin Ballet will pay tribute to its late, great founder Michael Smuin by performing his Carmina Burana. Set to the pulse-thumping cantata by Carl Orff, the choreography of Carmina Burana exemplifies the rhythm, speed and syncopation for which Smuin Ballet is beloved. Learn More

Since the shows includes the Flamenco school students, the performance levels vary over quit a range. However, overall the show is fun, the Flamenco dresses are fantastic, and it is a good value (despite Goldstar's steep $4 service charge on a $7 ticket).

The Flamenco Society of San Jose presents Brisas de España, recognized as one of the top Flamenco-Spanish dance companies in the United States. The uniqueness of Brisas de España emanates from the combination of Flamenco-Spanish dance presented on stage by Artistic Director, Carolina Lugo. Her artistic vision, which brings top international Flamenco artists from Spain and abroad to grace the stage with her and her company, interweaves the extraordinary talents of these artists with melodic palates of musical virtuosity and colorful step design with the clever staging of dancers
and musicians interlacing rhythms with one another to create a colorful canvas of artists on stage.
