The sold-out New York Times Best in Dance smash hit makes a triumphant return to the Miami City Ballet repertoire!

Following its North American premiere in our 2021/2022 season, this “crisp and refreshingly clean” (The New York Times) sophisticated interpretation of Swan Lake, lovingly reconstructed by the renowned Alexei Ratmansky, will enchant audiences once again.

Over fifty of MCB’s phenomenally talented dancers “lend flavor and picturesque richness” to Tchaikovsky’s splendid score, brought to life by MCB’s glorious live orchestra, creating a luminous production of a classic that is all its own.
