This very special season is a celebration of the brilliant artists and cultural organizations that have shaped our South Florida community. Opening with a love letter to Miami, Ablaze features exhilarating new works with a connection to our city by acclaimed artists. Prodigal Son and Afternoon of a Faun are a nod to Miami City Ballet’s earlier body of work built firmly on our Balanchine roots. And, building upon our legacy over the past three and a half decades is this year’s crowning event: our very own Swan Lake, representing Miami City Ballet’s world-class artistry and celebrating our place among the best companies in America.

Join us for this memorable 35th anniversary season.
