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

Fantastic... I brought my 3 year old godson and he loved it. He absolutely had to have a pirate hat before leaving. He danced the rest of the day and called it ballet. He finished off the day by telling be it was for boys and girls and he wanted to go again.
These buccaneers deliver loads of action and heaps of fun for the entire family. Kick-start your holiday season with this all-new production. You will love it!
