“The evening was a successful mix of past and present. Some of the dances are more than 60 years old but still fresh and vital. Robbins’ special connection to Spoleto was brilliantly honored.”
“Lourdes has exceeded expectations in making Miami City Ballet a company that rivals companies all over the country,” said Nigel Redden, general director of the festival.
“…this production, moderated by the Miami City Ballet Artistic Director Lourdes Lopez, will include discussion and film in addition to exquisite performances, making it a Spoleto-exclusive, don’t-miss event celebrating Robbins’ remarkable life and work.”
“Circles became straight lines, canons twirled to unison, out of nowhere, a dynamic series of turns came right down the middle of the stage. There was a playfulness in the childlike formations, hops and skips, but there was no subtlety in the demands of the piece.”
