Miami City Ballet Program II Explodes with Energy

Arsht Center. From Jan 8th through 10th, 2010.

Miami City Ballet presents its Program II at the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts from January 8th through 10th, 2010 featuring four different performances.

Program II:

Divertimento No. 15 (Choreographer: Balanchine/Composer: Mozart)
No Balanchine ballet can be explained completely by its score, and Divertimento No. 15, in keeping, contains a touch of mystery: the five principal women are partnered by only three men. This turns Divertimento No. 15 into a subtle study in asymmetry.

Valse Fantaisie (1953) (Choreographer: Balanchine/Composer: Glinka)
One man and three women is an odd arrangement for a ballet, but Balanchine’s brilliance led him to place the man among three equally compelling women, rather than opposite one or torn between two.

“The Golden Section” (Choreographer: Tharp/Composer: Byrne)
Seen for the first time on MCB’s main stage, this Twyla Tharp classic is pure energy as 13 dancers in gold costumes sail and soar through the air of the stage’s golden, glowing light.

Slaughter on Tenth Avenue (Choreographer: Balanchine/Composer: Rodgers)
Taken from a hit Broadway musical, this is a story of gangsters, strippers and an attempted murder plot revealed just in time. Fast-paced, with tap dancing and talking parts, this is wildly entertaining dance.
