Miami City Ballet in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. March 18-20 at the Adrienne Arsht Center, April 1-3 at the Kravis Center and April 9-10 at the Broward Center.
Miami’s terrific hometown ballet company celebrates its 30th season with substantial favorites (such as Liam Scarlett’s rocket-powered Viscera and George Balanchine’s exquisite version of the second act of Swan Lake on Program I) and intriguing company premieres (Justin Peck’s breakout ballet Year of the Rabbit on Program III and New York City Ballet artistic director Peter Martin’s Barber Violin Concerto on Program II). But the blockbuster is its original production of Balanchine’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which re-imagines this rarely done, evening-length version of Shakespeare’s magical tale for Miami, with direction by Tarell Alvin McCraney and new sets and costumes by Michele Oka Doner.
