A feast for the senses and the soul featuring the dramatic crowd favorite West Side Story Suite, a stylish new work by choreographer Durante Verzola, and a beloved ballet of epic scale in Divertimento No 15.
West Side Story Suite
Whether on stage or on screen, the music, dancing, and drama of West Side Story Suite never disappoints.
In 1995, Jerome Robbins adapted his smash-hit musical into a brilliantly theatrical suite of dances. Revel in the energy of the MCB’s own dancing and singing Sharks and Jets as they face it out at the school gym and ultimately – tragically – rumble in the streets. Feel for the tender lovers Tony and Maria, and paint the town with Anita and Bernardo as the suite unfolds – all in a swirling showcase of Robbins, Leonard Bernstein, and Stephen Sondheim’s collective genius.
West Side Story’s timeless theme of divisions among neighbors still resonates yet reminds us that with love, there’s a place for all of us.
World Premiere: Sentimiento
In this newly commissioned work by Durante Verzola, a highly talented young choreographer who comes from MCB School, his gorgeous choreographic style is fused with the lush designs of Miami-based international fashion designer Esteban Cortázar.
Divertimento No 15
A sparkling ballet for a regal cast of 16 dancers, Divertimento No. 15 is a prodigious work of geometric precision set to Mozart’s supreme score, which Balanchine considered the finest divertimento ever written.
