Program Two - Kravis Center

Sunday, Jan 20, 2019 at 1:00 PM - English

Program Two highlights two 20th century masterworks by Jerome Robbins. Dances at a Gathering, featuring ten dancers and live Chopin piano music, has been acclaimed as one of his greatest ballets, a profound yet light-hearted tribute to dancing and to dancers. This is the work that marked Robbins’ return to classical dance following his series of Broadway triumphs – West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof, Gypsy, et al. And then Brahms/ Handel, a unique collaboration between two choreographic geniuses who were also close friends: Robbins and Twyla Tharp. It’s a whirl of excitement — clever, dynamic, highest-octane — that The New York Times rightly acclaimed as “unlike anything in the ballet repertory.”

Program Three - Adrienne Arsht Center

Feb 22, 2019 to Feb 24, 2019 - click here for time schedule - English

The Four Temperaments, which opens Program Three, is a magnificent groundbreaking work inspired by the medieval belief that human beings are made of four different humors that determine a person’s temperament. Balanchine believed in “seeing the music” – and in the extended duet Duo Concertant, one of the sensations of New York City Ballet’s legendary 1972 Stravinsky Festival, the on-stage violinist and pianist play an integral role. The romantic and joyous Flower Festival in Genzano Pas de Deux brings us the grace and charm characteristic of the Danish 19th-century master choreographer August Bournonville. And, inspired by Miami’s vibrant Wynwood Arts District, Heatscape rounds out the bill. Choreographer Justin Peck and visual artist Shepard Fairey beautifully merge ballet and guerilla street art in this stunning collaboration of movement, music and design, which was created for the company three years ago.
