The internationally-acclaimed Miami City Ballet, under the artistic direction of former New York City Ballet superstar Edward Villella, makes its Manhattan debut at New York City Center with two dynamic programs. The first features Balanchine and Tharp classics – the second Balanchine masterworks.
“Miami City Ballet proves marvelous…the dancers are individual, skilled, colorful, confident, engaging.” – Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times
“If this isn’t world-class dancing, I don’t know what is. I’d see the Miami City Ballet in just about anything.” – Rachel Howard, San Francisco Chronicle
