Smuin Contemporary Ballet's "Dance Series 2"
Featuring the return of hit "Requiem for a Rose," an Afro-Cuban-inspired World Premiere, and more.
Smuin Contemporary Ballet’s groundbreaking spring program will introduce the Bay Area to internationally renowned Cuban choreographer Osnel Delgado, with a thrilling World Premiere that combines flawless contemporary dance with Afro-Cuban and Latin social dances, creating a piece truly unique to Smuin. Co-founder and Artistic Director of Havana’s Malpaso Dance Company, an Associate Company of Joyce Theater Productions, Delgado’s movement offers up passion, intricate musicality, and an exploration of relationships that transcend borders. Also on the program, back by popular demand, is Annabelle Lopez Ochoa‘s Requiem for a Rose, a captivating ballet set to one of Schubert's most romantic adagios. Lopez Ochoa, introduced to the Bay Area by Smuin in 2017, was inspired by her reflection on the meaning of true love and fleeting romance in creating this sublime work, which the San Francisco Classical Voice declared “perfection!” Rounding out the bill is Symphony of Psalms, Michael Smuin‘s spiritually evocative piece set to the dramatic Stravinsky score of the same name.
