Tickets are on sale for the 25th Anniversary Season (2010-2011) -- with LIVE orchestra at all performances.

N.B. This covers only those performances for which MCB acts as producer: Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach. It does not include performances of Nutcracker, Program II and Program III at Naples, Florida, which are usually presented by the Philharmonic Center in that city. The Naples website -- http://www.thephil.org/index.html -- does not yet have dates for next season.

[size=3]Miami City Ballet Announces its 25th Anniversary (2010-2011) Season[/size]

Miami City Ballet’s (MCB) milestone 25th Anniversary Season – perhaps the most exciting since its very first season – will feature a major Company Premiere in each of its four Programs – including Romeo and Juliet. Plus the return of the Opus One Orchestra at each of its Program I-IV performances. The 2010-2011 season in South Florida begins on October 15, 2010 and runs through May 1, 2011. The Company performs at Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County, at Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale; and at Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach.
Program I features the Company Premiere of Jerome Robbins’ Fanfare – a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II, with its premiere having taken place on the night of her coronation in 1953. It is an enchantingly bright and goofy take on Benjamin Britten’s “Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.” Now it salutes the start of the 25th Anniversary Season, and the return of Opus One Orchestra to the pit. Also on this program are two George Balanchine pieces, which include the sensual Bugaku and the lively Western Symphony.
Program II will highlight the Company Premiere of Twyla Tharp’s Baker’s Dozen, where she flings a dozen dancers onto the stage – hustling, spinning, shimmying, yet romantically inclined – to the irresistible stride piano of the immortal Willie “The Lion” Smith. Also appearing are Balanchine’s dramatic La Sonnambula and Balanchine’s exceptional Stravinsky Violin Concerto – plus a Pas de Deux TBA.
Program III spotlights Paul Taylor’s Promethean Fire – a work that has been suggested to be Taylor’s response to 911. Set to Leopold Stokowski’s magnificent orchestral transcriptions of Bach, it has been hailed everywhere as a masterpiece. The program also includes Balanchine’s high spirited Scotch Symphony and Tharp’s jazzy Nine Sinatra Songs.
Program IV is the Company Premiere of John Cranko’s acclaimed full-evening version of the world’s most famous love story, Romeo and Juliet. According to The New York Times, this is arguably the best dance treatment of Prokofiev’s celebrated score. An unforgettable ballet. A major event!
Once again, MCB will present George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker™. This delightful holiday family event features a cast of more than 100 professional dancers and talented students from Miami City Ballet School. Performances will take place at Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami and Broward Center in Fort Lauderdale -- and will return to Kravis Center in West Palm Beach following a 2-year absence.
Full subscription renewal packages, to which Nutcracker tickets can be added, will be mailed in February and mini-series renewals will be mailed in March. Reservations for new subscriptions can be made starting in February, and for single tickets beginning in April, through Miami City Ballet’s Box Office.
Four-program subscription series are priced from $635 to $69; two-program “mini-subscriptions” are priced from $330 to $36. Single ticket prices for the repertory are $169 to $19, except for Program IV (Romeo and Juliet) which will range from $175 to $20. Nutcracker ticket prices are $65 to $19.75 (discounted to $58-$19 when ordered with a subscription package). There has been no increase in ticket prices, except for Program IV single tickets, from last season’s prices.
For more information about subscription packages, including group discounts, please call Miami City Ballet Box Office toll-free at (877) 929-7010. Tickets go on sale through the theaters’ Box Offices and through Ticketmaster in August.
