MCB's Board Chairman has just announced the dates for their six performances at NY City Center: January 21 - 25, 2009
It sounds like everyone at MCB is just a LITTLE bit excited:
We want you to share in the excitement of Miami City Ballet's triumphant New York City Debut and Edward Villella's homecoming.
It's hard to believe that over 50 years have passed since Villella first danced for Balanchine on the City Center stage.
Ticket and program information -- and special events planned -- are not yet available.
I client of mine from New York who's very involved with MCB told me that over there her friends and old time balletgoers were talking about Eddie's homecoming as "The Return of The Prodigal Son".
Bravo Eddie! Bravo MCB!
This is very exciting news! It is truly a homecoming and such a great opportunity to reconnect with an important part of this city's dance history.
We need a tribute – A Tribute to Edward Villella Evening
. This is just the kind of thing that the Guggenheim's Works & Process
does so well. I'm emailing Manny Rodriguez, who is the Associate Producer of W&P, today. If anyone else wants to write, Manny's email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
(taken from the Gugg's website). Anyone out there have Mary Sharp Cronson's email?
