The New York Times previews Alexei Ratmansky’s “The Fairy’s Kiss” – premiering this weekend at the Adrienne Arsht Center. “While Ratmansky draws from the classical canon, he also shapes the movement with his own accent, with the aim of telling the story with greater immediacy.”
Miami City Ballet gave New York a sneak peek at The Fairy’s Kiss prior to its world premiere on Feb. 10. Choreographer Alexei Ratmansky, Artistic Director Lourdes Lopez and projection designer Wendall K. Harrington discussed the creation of the new ballet, music by Igor Stravinsky, and MCB dancers.
