Miami City Ballet Brings Copp

Long before Julie Catwoman Newmar played a robot in the short-lived ’60s TV sitcom My Living Doll (episodes of which have just been released on DVD, if you’re into that sort of thing), another, different kind of mechanized gal was breaking somebody’s heart. Her name? Copp

Announcing The 2012-2013 Season

Miami City Ballet 2012-2013 Season of Dance The 2012-2013 season will be highlighted by two important premieres: (1) Alexei Ratmansky, today’s most highly acclaimed classical choreographer, has created SYMPHONIC DANCES to Rachmaninoff’s final great score. It joins our repertory season next February , after a one-time-only preview, in collaboration with The Cleveland Orchestra, at our Gala this Thursday, March 1. (2) Liam Scarlett, The Royal Ballet’s young prodigy of a choreographer, returns to us with another World Premiere ballet (as yet unnamed) following the triumphant World Premiere this year of his blazing VISCERA. Also returning to the repertory, after long absences, are works by the two leading choreographers of the 20th century: George Balanchine and Frederick Ashton. Balanchine’s APOLLO, from 1928, with its ravishing Stravinsky score and Ashton’s LES PATINEURS, also called THE SKATING PARTY, with all the charm and nostalgia it’s been celebrated for since it was first seen in 1937.Rounding out next season will be many of our audience favorites, including Jerome Robbins’ hour-long piano ballet DANCES AT A GATHERING; Balanchine’s dark, turbulent LA VALSE, his Mozartian DIVERTIMENTO No. 15 and his rowdy SLAUGHTER ON TENTH AVENUE, from the hit Rodgers and Hart Broadway musical ON YOUR TOES. And, in a very different mood, Paul Taylor’s tango ballet PIAZZOLLA CALDERA. All subscribers also have the first opportunity to purchase discount tickets to George Balanchine’s THE NUTCRACKER

Ballet Announces 2012-2013 Season

Tickets go on sale Monday for Miami City Ballet’s 2012-2013 season, which will bring back Symphonic Dances, the work by renowned choreographer Alexei Ratmansky set to Rachmaninoff’s final score that received its world premiere from MCB last week. It will be the focus of Program III in March 2013.Another highlight is a new dance commissioned from Liam Scarlett, whose intense, slashing Viscera made such an impression in its MCB world premiere in January. The young Royal Ballet choreographer’s still untitled work will debut on Program II, which opens Jan. 11.The rest of the season, which opens Oct. 19 at Miami’s Arsht Center and closes April 28 at the West Palm Beach’s Kravis Center, consists of existing repertoire, some of which the company hasn’t danced in years. That includes Balanchine’s glorious, witty ode to classical dance, Apollo; his Duo Concertant, in which a couple interact with a pianist and violinist onstage; and his darkly seductive La Valse.Other highlights should be Jerome Robbins’ elegiac Dances at a Gathering; Paul Taylor’s sexy, riveting Piazzolla Caldera, to music by tango master Astor Piazzolla; and Les Patineurs ( The Skating Party), a nostalgic postcard by the great British choreographer Frederick Ashton.The full schedule and subscriptions ($69-$635) are available at www.miamicityballet.org, 305-929-7010 or 877-929-7010.
