I won't be able to make it-(working tonight)-but nevertheless, wishing much luck to this dancers, the last wage of defectors from La Assoluta's company. (My mom is going, so I will have first account on the performance..;-) )

By popular demand the Cuban Classical Ballet of Miami will bring to the Miamian stage some of the most beloved selections of the

Diaguilev Ballet Russes, featuring Bolshoi ballerina, Katherina Markowski, the nine recently exiled Cuban ballet dancers and other

era, like "Les Sylphides" , "Afternoon of a Faun", "Cleopatra", "Firebird", "Le Carnival", "Narcissus", "The Dying Swan" and

"Scheherezade", with the added bonus of some favorite gala ciurcuit PDD's, like "Le Corsaire" "The Fairy Doll" and "La Bayadere"

Great repertoire! I imagine they are excerpts from all those ballets, b/c even though most are short works Firebird is around 45 minutes and Le Carnaval is about 30 minutes, etc. I assume the show is all excerpted pieces.

It is still probably a wonderful show!

They did this program already-(right when I was flying to Italy). My friend, whom also follows MCB,went to see it and loved it. Yes...they are excerpts of the ballets. Computarized projections of Benois and Baskt backdrops were used with great results, as I was told.
