Miami City Ballet’s Program 4 is filled with dynamic and innovative works. Don’t miss the company premiere of Alexei Ratmansky’s Concerto DSCH, an amazingly inventive and exciting ballet, set to Dmitri Shostakovich’s seething piano concerto. According to The New York Times’ Alastair Macaulay: “Its dances pour forth in a continuous stream of galvanizing excitement and affectionate intimacy…The most captivating classical ballet I have seen in years.”
Ratmansky’s work is complemented by two Ballanchine ballets. La Valse is a sumptuous and grand work, with 34 dancers waltzing in a mysterious ballroom to the gripping music of Maurice Ravel. Apollo was Balanchine’s first acknowledged masterwork, and its revolutionary neoclassical dance elements literally transformed the art of 20th-century ballet. It’s a perfect vehicle for this exceptionally talented company.
