  • Soon These Two Worlds: Amy Seiwert, Choreographer
  • Fly Me to the Moon: Michael Smuin, Choreographer

Set to selections from the Kronos Quartet’s Pieces of Africa, Soon These Two Worlds blends joyful West African rhythms with pointe work for a truly unique ballet.  “Genuinely upbeat… solidly structured energy with a fresh, sunny disposition. “ (San Francisco Chronicle)

Michael Smuin’s signature style is on full display in his smash-hit tribute to the genius of Frank Sinatra.  A blend of ballet and popular dance, Fly Me to the Moon is the embodiment of the smooth and stylish songs of the “Chairman of the Board.” Featuring “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “That’s Life,” “The Lady is a Tramp,” and more.

The sounds of alt-rockers The Shins drive an action-packed piece from Trey McIntyre. From pensive ballads to pulsing rock, Oh, Inverted World explodes onto the stage, carving a path of love and longing marked by intricate patterns and athletic partnering.
