Witness the athletic power and expressive grace of classical dance with Miami City Ballet’s third program of the season. It showcases masterpieces by George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins, along with a world premiere by contemporary choreographer Brian Brooks.
Set to Tchaikovsky’s music, Balanchine’s Theme and Variations is an acknowledged masterpiece of 20th-century ballet, it premiered in 1947 and was performed in the late 1970s by Mikhail Barishnikov and Gelsey Kirkland. MCB’s production features sumptuous costumes and a massive cast, along with plenty of 19th-century opulence. Brian Brooks’ choreography for MCB is set to new music from American composer Michael Gordon, co-founder of bang on a can. Program Three ends with Jerome Robbin’s The Concert (Or, The Perils of Everybody), universally acclaimed as the funniest of all comic ballets. This entertaining work explores the unspoken impulses and fantasies of mankind–some nice and some not-so-nice!
From $25. 8 p.m., March 2; 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., March 3; 1 p.m., March 4.
