Smuin dancer Erica Felsch is the featured soloist in Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s “Requiem for a Rose,” presented as part of Smuin’s “Dance Series 01” this week in Mountain View.

Smuin is scheduled to bring “Dance Series 01” to Mountain View this week for five performances.

Part of its 24th season, “Dance Series 01” includes the pieces “Requiem for a Rose,” “Fly Me to the Moon” and “Serenade for Strings.” It debuted last fall in San Francisco.

Choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa produces “Requiem for a Rose,” set to what many consider to be Franz Schubert’s most romantic string composition, “Quintet in C.”

“Fly Me to the Moon” – produced by Michael Smuin – is a blend of ballet and popular dance, highlighting Frank Sinatra favorites such as “You and the Night and Music” and “I Won’t Dance,” and culminating in a full-chorus, high-kicking “New York, New York.”

“Serenade for Strings,” produced by choreographer Garrett Ammon, is a new interpretation of a piece tied to the 1934 Balanchine ballet “Serenade,” set to the Tchaikovsky score of the same name.

Performances are slated 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St.

Tickets are $56-$74.
