Four mesmerizing works by choreographic icons that transport you to otherworldly places – from sundrenched beauty to high-energy fireworks. 

Program includes:

Ballo della Regina


Ballo della Regina is a rollercoaster of intricate footwork that pushes the limits of physical possibility. With unusual step combinations, bounding solos and famously challenging technical feats, this is a joyous display of ballet fireworks.

Afternoon of a Faun


Sensual, narcissistic and intimate. A chance meeting in a sun-soaked ballet studio. Claude Debussy’s rich, honeyed score swirls around two dancers as they stretch, preen and drift together. They are transfixed by their reflection – the mirror is the audience, and we observe their private reverie. Is this mesmerizing interaction real life or a dream?

Antique Epigraphs*


Inspired by French poetry and Greek mythology, an all-female cast skim the floor like statues brought to life, moving through Debussy’s rippling music as cool and luminous as marble.

Symphony in Three Movements


Crackling with genius and flashes of electricity, Miami City Ballet’s “superb” (The New York Times) interpretation of this masterpiece has awed critics and audiences. The spine tingles as a battalion of warrior-dancers attack, leap and swing with split-second precision. High-voltage action pulsates to Igor Stravinsky’s futuristic, jazzy score. Feel the exhilaration!
