Smuin kicks off its 24th season with “Dance Series 01,” a program that includes the West Coast premiere of Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s critically lauded and transcendent piece “Requiem for a Rose,” set to what many consider to be Schubert’s most romantic string adagio, from the Quintet in C. Also on the program is Michael Smuin’s joyful tribute to Ol’ Blue Eyes, “Fly Me to the Moon.” This blend of ballet and popular dance is the embodiment of the smooth and stylish melodies that have inspired generations, including Sinatra’s renditions of “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” and “The Lady is a Tramp.” Rounding out the bill is the return of Garrett Ammon’s bold “Serenade for Strings.” Set to Tchaikovsky’s score of the same name, this work is a vibrant new interpretation of a piece inexorably tied to the iconic 1934 Balanchine ballet.
