With our highest priority focused on the health and well-being of our patrons, dancers, staff and audiences, we have made the difficult yet necessary decision that our 2020/21 Season will not go on as planned. In the coming months, MCB will announce a reimagined season featuring unique performances and online premieres.
“Triumphant. An overwhelming success” said the Financial Times of Alexei Ratmansky’s Swan Lake.
Miami City Ballet premieres this captivating vision of the world’s most mesmerizing ballet, by one of the most renowned choreographers of our time. Timeless and achingly beautiful, Swan Lake has been beloved like no other classical ballet for more than a century.
More than 50 dancers adorn the stage in lush and glittering costumes to tell the story of Prince Siegfried, Princess Odette and her fellow spellbound swans, the evil Baron and impostor Odile.
Tchaikovsky’s moving and joyful music is played by a live orchestra as some of ballet’s most famous moments unfold. From a grand and gorgeous medieval court to the lakeside under a midnight moon, the romance of this stunning Swan Lake will set your heart alight.
