Virtual Smuin al Fresco features excerpts from Michael Smuin’s The Tempest and Sueños Latinos as well as favorite selections from the Smuin Songbook. We are also thrilled to present a number of new works! Company alum Rex Wheeler has choreographed a pas de deux, and the program includes premieres by eight Company Artists fresh off their successes with our March Choreography Showcase. Look for choreography by Tessa Barbour, Ian Buchanan, Maggie Carey, Cassidy Isaacson, John Speed Orr, Terez Dean Orr, Max van der Sterre, and Brennan Wall.

Virtual Smuin al Fresco dates are livestream performances. Just like a live show, you buy tickets and watch shows on the dates and times they take place.

Immediately following each online performance, we invite you to join a virtual Q&A with Artistic Director, Celia Fushille and the Artists from that program
