loved the event, however seats got expensive with the service charge and the seats were not that good

Review from Kenneth Solnit

Just wonderful. I'm not a big ballet fan, but I love Smuin shows. They use modern, popular music that we love, and modern, expressive choreography that we can enjoy.

Description

The program begins as Choreographer in Residence Amy Seiwert presents her wry, quirky take on lust in Been Through Diamonds – her 7th new work for the Company. The critics have wildly acclaimed Amy’s subtle humor in this piece as well as her unexpected pairing of modern movement and Mozart. Emmy Award-winning Robert Sund’s sexy, jazzy interpretation of Carmen set to Miles Davis’ Sketches of Spain follows. The program is rounded off with a celebration of Michael Smuin’s signature Dances with Songs – a marvelous and colorful medley set to all our favorites. The piece is as fresh and entertaining today as it was in its 1994 debut.
