MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – (September 24, 2015) – Miami City Ballet will kick off its landmark 30th Anniversary Season with a red-carpet opening night celebration at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami, on October 23, 2015 at 6:30pm.
Ticket holders are invited to join the company 90 minutes prior to curtain on the Arsht Center’s Thompson Plaza for the Arts for an open-air reception with specialty cocktails, a live DJ, photo ops and a toast to 30 years of ballet. No RSVP necessary.
Program One opens the season with three fan favorites, including Swan Lake, George Balanchine’s one-act version of the most famous of all ballets, set to Tchaikovsky’s most dramatic and evocative score. The program also features the return of Viscera, a rhythmic and intensely physical work created on MCB by Liam Scarlett, widely considered to be England’s most promising new choreographer; and Fancy Free, Jerome Robbins’ and Leonard Bernstein’s breakthrough World War II ballet – the story of three sailors making the most of their 24-hour shore leave in New York City, and the basis for the hit musical “On The Town.”
MCB’s 30th Anniversary Season is presented in loving memory of R. Kirk Landon, a remarkable philanthropist, leader and beloved friend to Miami City Ballet.
