“Miami City Ballet, a jubilant and endearing company, refreshes the eyes and spirit.–The New York Times

Applauding a recent Miami City Ballet performance, the chief dance critic of The New York Times wrote that the artists—musical, boundless, and technically clear—“dance with sunshine.” It was high praise for the American troupe, which is internationally renowned for its interpretations of George Balanchine’s iconic choreography. Yet Miami City Ballet is also committed to presenting new works by more contemporary innovators, including Justin Peck and Alexei Ratmansky—two eminent choreographers whose pieces highlight the company’s triumphant return to Spoleto Festival USA. And for balletomanes who revel in more classic selections, Miami City Ballet offers up Balanchine’s joyful Walpurgisnacht Ballet.

Witness Miami City Ballet’s tribute to legendary choreographer Jerome Robbins—Celebration: The Art of the Pas de Deux—on the Festival’s opening night!
