May 12, 2023 - May 14, 2023 |Alexander W. Dreyfoos Concert Hall

Program includes:

Afternoon of a Faun
Robbins / Debussy

Two dancers meet in a sun-soaked ballet studio. They stretch, preen, and drift together – transfixed by their own reflections. The mirror is the audience, and we observe their intimate encounter, equal parts sensual and narcissistic. It was observing a young student at the School of American Ballet that inspired Robbins to create this masterpiece. That student was MCB Artistic Founder, Edward Villella.

Square Dance
Balanchine / Vivaldi / Corelli

Lively couples clap, jump, and turn with gusto and charm in this melding of American folk dance and classical ballet.

“Two little ladies, up the track/sashay over, sashay back…” In an unprecedented return to the 1957 original, MCB’s current rendition of Square Dance brings back to the stage the high-spirited square-dance caller and his musician pals to keep things going.

Here is Square Dance as Balanchine first conceived it!

Antique Epigraphs*
Robbins / Debussy

Ethereal and mystical, inspired by Greek mythology and poetry, a cast of eight composed women skim the floor like statues brought to life. Delicate and strong as the cool marble they embody, the women move with consummate grace to Debussy’s poetic score.

Symphony in Three Movements
Balanchine / Stravinsky

Crackling with genius, Miami City Ballet’s “superb” (The New York Times) interpretation of this Balanchine masterpiece from the legendary 1972 Stravinsky Festival awes critics and audiences everywhere. Stravinsky’s driving, ominous score propels the warrior-dancers and pony-tailed ballerinas as they attack, leap, and threaten with their high-powered non-stop energy and dynamism.
