REVIEW: World Premiere of Ratmansky's Symphonic Dances (concerto.net, 3.2.12)
March 02, 2012
A coproduction between one of the world’s greatest orchestras and ballet companies is an adventure for any city and for Miami quite a coup.
Offering Dvorák’s Carnival Overture, Ravel’s Valse nobles et sentimentales and La Valse and concluding with Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances without dance would still be quite an impressive program. But having choreography by Balanchine and Ratmansky in addition is almost more than one could wish for.
