In the company premiere of Jerome Robbins’ stunning I’m Old Fashioned, Miami City Ballet is joined by two larger than life stars, Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth, on a huge screen dancing and gliding alongside Miami City Ballet dancers. This tribute to the Golden Age of Hollywood is big, glamorous and simply irresistible. Another company premiere, Christopher Wheeldon’s This Bitter Earth, is utterly riveting and deeply moving. Set to the gorgeously haunting music of Max Richter and Dinah Washington, this simple yet dramatically powerful and breathtaking work lingers far after it’s over. The program also includes the Tschaikovsky Pas De Deux choreographed by Balanchine and Symphonic Dances, a dramatic, fast-paced work by one of the world’s most sought-after, visionary choreographers Alexei Ratmansky that is set to Sergei Rachmaninoff’s lush, powerful score of the same name.
