Smuin Ballet: The Christmas Ballet

Through Fri 12/20/19 PT

Smuin kicks off the holidays with the welcome return of The Christmas Ballet, a program featuring two acts packed to the brim with both breathtaking classical ballet and festive contemporary numbers. The beloved Bay Area tradition will bring back time-honored favorites and unveil brand new surprises set to holiday tunes and incorporating ballet, tap, jazz, and swing. The first act, Classical Christmas, features dancers costumed in snow-white ensembles performing flawless ballets celebrating the holiday season. The Cool Christmas second act brings a red-hot costume change along with a medley of lively modern numbers, including the iconic “Santa Baby” featuring a 42-foot long feather boa.

  1. The many short pieces are like a box of delicious bonbons. The dancers are superb, the performances delightful & there are new works every year with old favorites. A really joyous evening!

  2. Wonderful as always. I see their Christmas ballet every year. they have some new dancers this year which was nice to see. I actually liked the first half better this year which was had the more traditional ballet pieces. the second half was fun Christmas dances. Quite a few short pieces in the short half are stellar. Excellent seat too. Thanks RushTix.

  3. The dancers are sublime. It’s a gorgeous show that puts you in the holiday spirit.

  4. I especially loved the second segment with the modern interpretation of the christmas songs for ballet. It drew many laughters. Highly recommend for any art lovers!

  5. We saw the Smuin Ballet a few months ago for the fall review and thought it was one of the best but this years Christmas ballet was even better. A crowd pleaser, a full house and standing ovations for the dancers. The first half was traditional ballet and as usual, the second was danced to modern music and we enjoyed the different themes, Irish, Jewish, Mexican, jazz and so on. And the end ballet was terrific and the snow fell onto the stage as a glittering ending. Plus we all had to laugh as in the middle of the theatre, snow fell from the ceiling onto the ticket holders. Worth seeing more than once!

  6. One of the best shows I saw this Christmas season. The dancing was fantastic, and there was a great range of different short numbers that kept everyone well entertained.

  7. I’m not a ballet enthusiast, so the first act (the classical portion) was kind of lost on me. The second act (the contemporary portion), however, was a ton of fun! The dancers were very talented. Definitely worth a watch!

  8. they change it up a little bit each year, really fantastic seats this year! first half of it is traditional christmas songs, second half is more modern/fun
