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

My wife and I attended the Saturday Feb 16 show featuring the Flying Karamazov Brothers. Frankly, you should be embarrassed for allowing a production that bad to play in your facility. Listening to the guy ramble on for 90 minutes about how cool he and his friends were, name drop all the celebrities they hung out with, and brag about how often they got laid was disappointing at best and verged on disgusting.
I say only 90 minutes because we left at intermission. On top the awful narrative, we were subjected to very bad juggling also. The guys dropped the items they were juggling almost every time. I could do that well with a few weeks of practice.
Really and truly a wasted evening, topped off by the fact that we had to pay hard-earned money to watch it.
A retrospective of the Brothers' 40 years of comedy, theatre, juggling, and music from their founding in 1973 on the streets of San Francisco to the Big White Way and the Silver Screen.
