Smuin Ballet’s 2008 Winter Program features the return of Michael Smuin’s iconic Stabat Mater_¸ choreographed to Dvorak’s music of the same title and his Duettino_¸ an absolutely beautiful, virtuoso pas de deux set to Verdi opera selections. Also featured is O_bjects of Curiosity_, a World Premiere by Smuin Protégé Program choreographer Amy Seiwert – set to music by Philip Glass and Foday Musa Suso, an effort which continues her status as an artist who “more than any other choreographer in the Bay Area is exploring the language of classicism with an almost religious belief in its eloquence, power and possibilities” (Voice of Dance).
Guest choreographer Kirk Peterson (The Eyes That Gently Touch) returns with the Premiere of his whimsical “Smuin-esque” ballet, Reinin’ In the Hurricane, set to country music legends Randy Travis, Gene Autry, k.d. lang and more. Peterson was most recently Artistic Director of the American Ballet Theatre Studio Company and was the innovative Artistic Director of Hartford Ballet for five years.
