Miami City Ballet: Program Four at Kravis Center For The Performing Arts

Fri 6 Apr, 2018 - Sun 8 Apr, 2018

Program Four brings the company premiere of Alexei Ratmansky’s Concerto DSCH, an amazingly inventive and exciting ballet, set to a seething Dmitri Shostakovich piano concerto. Alastair Macaulay in The New York Times had this to say: “Its dances pour forth in a continuous stream of galvanizing excitement and affectionate intimacy…The most captivating classical ballet I have seen in years.”

Two Balanchine classics close out the season: in La Valse, 34 dancers waltz in a mysterious ballroom to gripping music by Maurice Ravel that projects a mood of impending doom, and Apollo, Balanchine’s first great masterwork, which literally transformed the art of 20th-century ballet with its revolutionary neoclassical approach to dance.
