This month our dancers left behind the warm South Florida weather and headed to Vancouver, British Columbia for a weekend of special performances. Hosted by Ballet BC, the Company presented a full program of masterworks by George Balanchine with performances of Serenade, Symphony in Three Movements and Ballo della Regina. The performances, which received rave reviews, marked the company’s debut in Vancouver.
On Sale Now! Tony Award-winning choreographer Justin Peck and celebrated artist Shepard Fairey beautifully merge ballet and guerilla street art. Plus, Balanchine’s Duo Concertant, a violinist and pianist perform Stravinsky’s high-spirited music, alongside the two dancers.
Orchestra Seats Available! The season grand finale features our extraordinary reimagining of Balanchine’s captivating story ballet. Enter the undersea fantasy of entangled lovers, fairy royalty, magic spells, and happy-ever-afters in Shakespeare’s timeless tale of love.
