Abstract:

This electrifying night of music and dance in Miami celebrates the storied association between composer Igor Stravinsky and choreographer George Balanchine--a partnership that revolutionized ballet--with Stravinsky protégé Michael Tilson Thomas and Balanchine dancer Lourdes Lopez! Stravinsky's magnificent score for 1928's Apollo, the duo's first collaboration of many, inspired the young Balanchine to reevaluate the relationship between music and movement. The Miami City Ballet presents his original, timeless choreography, whose pared-down elegance and enhanced freedom of movement came to define neoclassicism in ballet. Then, after Emily Eckstein's immersive video show accompanying the jocular Circus Polka, violin virtuoso James Ehnes brings his prodigious talents to the mix as another brilliant Balanchine staging turns the lively lyricism of Stravinsky's Violin Concerto into visual poetry.
