Bach/Balanchine — Concerto Barocco
The Andrews Sisters/Taylor — Company B
Tchaikovsky/Balanchine — Ballet Imperial

In this first program of the season, Miami City Ballet will perform Concerto Barocco with the Naples Philharmonic, a signature George Balanchine ballet, set to Bach’s glorious Double Violin Concerto in D Minor. Then comes that great audience favorite, Company B, a Paul Taylor work set to popular 1940s hits like Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and Rum and Coca-Cola, sung by The Andrews Sisters. And finally, Ballet Imperial is a thrilling masterpiece that pays homage to the spirit and grandeur of imperial St. Petersburg. Balanchine described it as a contemporary tribute to Petipa, the father of classical ballet, and to Tchaikovsky, his greatest composer.

Prelude at 7pm

Arrive early to enjoy the Hayes Hall Galleries and light fare at the cafe. The doors to Hayes Hall open 90 minutes prior to this performance.

Miami City Ballet

Miami City Ballet

Described by The New York Times as “an exceptional troupe, by Balanchine standards, anywhere in the world,” Miami City Ballet is led by Artistic Director Lourdes Lopez and is considered a leader in the field—nurturing new choreographic voices, creating innovative collaborations and opening new avenues of inclusivity within classical ballet.

The company’s repertory of more than 100 ballets, including 12 world premieres, was built upon the Balanchine works, style and technique. It was then expanded to include beloved classical works of importance and exciting new choreography by groundbreaking contemporary artists.

Miami City Ballet has toured extensively throughout the United States, Canada and Europe and its 2016 debut at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater was hailed by the national press as a resounding success.
