MIAMI — Miami City Ballet, widely known as one of the world’s leading exponents of choreography by George Balanchine, also has a record of new choreography. Its current quadruple bill, labeled “See the Music,” opens with Balanchine’s “Concerto Barocco” (1941) and has Nacho Duato’s “Jardí Tancat” (1983), a new company acquisition, as a centerpiece. But it also features two works recently made for the troupe, Justin Peck’s “Chutes and Ladders” (2013, to the first movement of Benjamin Britten’s String Quartet No. 1) and Alexei Ratmansky’s “Symphonic Dances” (2012, to Rachmaninoff’s 1940 work of that name).
