“Each piece in this program is exceptionally crafted and performed, but it is the journey from one to the next that leaves the strongest impression. In an ever-changing dance landscape, Miami City Ballet has the talent, versatility and foresight to remain a leader.”
“The evening was a successful mix of past and present. Some of the dances are more than 60 years old but still fresh and vital. Robbins’ special connection to Spoleto was brilliantly honored.”
“Lourdes has exceeded expectations in making Miami City Ballet a company that rivals companies all over the country,” said Nigel Redden, general director of the festival.
“…this production, moderated by the Miami City Ballet Artistic Director Lourdes Lopez, will include discussion and film in addition to exquisite performances, making it a Spoleto-exclusive, don’t-miss event celebrating Robbins’ remarkable life and work.”
