Miami City Ballet’s 2014-2015 season continues with “Hear the Dance” featuring Balanchine, Tharp and Taylor. This high energy performance is coming to the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in our city of West Palm Beach this weekend, January 23-25.
Miami City Ballet’s second program of the season, “Hear the Dance,” offers something for everyone in a musically inspired lineup celebrating the choreographic masters that are staples of the Company’s repertoire: Paul Taylor, Twyla Tharp, and of course, George Balanchine. Here the breadth of MCB’s artistic diversity is on display with three very different works by three of America’s most cherished choreographers: Taylor’s festive Mercuric Tidings, set to the exuberant tunes of Schubert, showcases the great athleticism of MCB dancers; Broadway meets ballet in Tharp’s Nine Sinatra Songs (a MCB fan favorite) featuring glamorous costuming by Oscar de la Renta; and Balanchine’s Symphony in Three Movements, set to Stravinsky, highlights some of the most dynamic dance patterns in the neoclassical paradigm.
The program is inspired by George Balanchine’s famous quote that one should, “See the music, hear the dance.” The program features high octane dancing set to some of America’s most treasured tunes. It is the perfect treat for ballet lovers who like to be kept on their toes.
