This season, the acclaimed Miami City Ballet celebrates its 25th anniversary with an extraordinary quartet of programs. Debuting this month, the lineup features a major company premiere in each of the four shows, including Jerome Robbins’ witty and delightful Fanfare, set to a score by Benjamin Britten, and John Cranko’s masterful full-evening version of Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet. Happily, this year also sees the return of live music with the Opus One Orchestra conducted by Gary Sheldon. As founding artistic director Edward Villella notes, “That we are thriving and celebrating our 25th anniversary season with the return of live music is a win-win situation for our dancers, musicians and audience.” Certainly, South Florida will have a reason to kick up its heels this winter.
