    Celebrating Michael Smuin includes two ballets, ZORRO! and FLY ME TO THE MOON.

    About ZORRO!

    A true swashbuckler, ZORRO! has not been performed since 2006. ZORRO! adapts the legend of the folk hero, setting the story at a movie theater in the 1950s.  Sensory alert: ZORRO! includes strobing lights and loud noises from whips.

    About FLY ME TO THE MOON

    FLY ME TO THE MOON, revived now for its 20th anniversary, is quintessential Michael. This beloved tribute to Frank Sinatra has both the pointework and pizzazz you expect from Smuin.

    For more information, to purchase tickets, to book a spot in a Haptic Access Tour, or to reserve a headset please call the Smuin box office at 415-912-1899 or email boxoffice@smuinballet.org.

Rushmore, railroad history and the mob museum in Las Vegas, Nevada.We encourage suggestions for topics or locations from our participants.

    All sessions last for one (1) hour and start on time.

    The call in number is: 605-475-5620, and the access code is: 3789127#. If you plan to save these numbers in your contacts, I recommend inserting two (2) commas between the main number and the access code.

    Those wishing to receive an e-mail reminder for upcoming sessions or links provided by the presenter, should:

    Send an e-mail to Doc Eudaly at deteacha@sbcglobal.net. Please put your full name, phone number, and email address in the body of your e-mail.

    Calls for 2024 will begin on Tuesday, January 9.
