Program includes:

Diversion of Angels*
Miami City Ballet premieres its first-ever ballet by Martha Graham, the great pioneer of American modern dance. With her signature style, Graham revolutionized how dancers could move their bodies to convey human emotion. In Diversion of Angels, three couples express three aspects of love: flirtatious young love, romantic love, mature love. How beautiful and enthralling they all can be!

  • CHOREOGRAPHY: Martha Graham
  • MUSIC: Norman Della Joio

The Moor's Pavane
To help celebrate the Jose Limon Dance Company's 75th Anniversary, MCB performs his haunting ballet of jealousy, passion, and tragedy based on Othello. To the ravishing music of Henry Purcell, Shakespeare's four central characters play out their fate in this world-famous stately yet searing drama.

  • CHOREOGRAPHY: Jose Limon
  • MUSIC: Henry Purcell

World Premiere: Petrichor
In his first ballet for MCB, the internationally esteemed Pontus Lidberg uses Philip Glass's hypnotic Violin Concerto in his latest innovative exploration of how dance, technology, and film can combine into an inspiring work of art.

  • CHOREOGRAPHY: Pontus Lidberg
  • MUSIC: Phillip Glass

World Premiere: Resplendent Fantasy
Amy Hall Garner's second commission for MCB follows her digital premiere of ViVa (2021). A genre-mixing artist, Garner will again explore the interplay between ballet and modern dance in a piece that is wholly unique and stirring.

Spanish Classical Nights

Friday, Feb 10, 2023 at 8:00 PM - English

Cuban Classical Ballet of Miami presents the premier of "Spanish Classical Nights", in collaboration with the Sanctuary of the Arts Choreographic Ensemble, on Friday, February 10 at 8:00 p.m. at the Miami Dade County Auditorium.

Following the Spaniard roots of CCBM, "Spanish Classical Nights" will include some of the best of classical Spanish repertoire, where both the subject and the styles are clearly Spanish. This emphasizes the relationship between classical ballet and traditional Spanish dance, which has influenced the repertoire of both the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Including "Paquita" Suite, "Esmeralda" Pas de six, "Don Quixote" Pas de deux, and others.
