In its eighteenth season, Miami City Ballet is an acknowledged force in the international dance world - - a must see, world-caliber company directed by legendary dancer Edward Villella. In recognition and celebration of the 100th Anniversary of George Balanchine's birth, Miami City Ballet performs an all-Balanchine/Stravinsky program featuring three seminal ballets: Violin Concerto, Apollo, and Symphony in Three Movements. To complement and enhance this presentation, Edward Villella will offer a lecture on George Balanchine, his collaboration with Igor Stravinsky, and his legacy.
"Miami City Ballet is one of the great successes of late 20th century American Ballet."
