About the Event

Serenade
Symphony in Three Movements
Heatscape
With Live Orchestra

What a grand finale! Miami City Ballet returns to Northrop with a program as vibrant and intoxicating as their namesake city.  With a Balanchine-based repertory that Le Monde says “gives goosebumps to fans of dance,” the dancers’ non-stop energy and unfailing clarity leave audiences cheering.  Serenade is a sweeping, romantic work with a transcendent Tchaikovsky score—a milestone in the history of dance. The jet-propelled Symphony in Three Movements matches Stravinsky’s signature rhythms with angular, athletic choreography. Miami’s colorful urban art scene inspires Justin Peck’s Heatscape, danced to a sprightly Martinu score.

“'Heatscape' shows [Justin Peck's] gift for memorably picturesque, changing group shapes: lines, rings, clusters occur at various points and angles on the stage, registering dramatically. Meanwhile the dancers infectiously show the appeal of the ebullient movement he gives to them." - The New York Times

“To return to Miami City Ballet is like being welcomed home. The dancers flood the theater with qualities of warmth and vitality…..Yet, what is so remarkable is their selflessness: they place all of their energies at the service of music and choreography.” – The New York Times
