Behind the Ballet

Pre-Performance Experiences


Behind the Ballet is a pre-performance lecture series taking place one hour prior to curtain at each of Miami City Ballet’s mainstage repertory performances. Members of the MCB artistic staff (dancers, choreographers, répétiteurs, conductors and musicians) interview each other and explore key concepts of dance making, with a focus on the upcoming ballets.

Other performance elements, including musical score, choreography and costumes may also be discussed, followed by a lively question-and-answer session with the audience.
