Miami City Ballet

June 21-24, 2017

Hailed by The New York Times as “one of America’s most beloved dance companies,” these stunning ballet dancers open the Pillow’s 85th Anniversary Season, bringing works from iconic choreographers.

Described as “bold, light, immediate, intensely musical” (The New York Times), Miami City Ballet makes its first Festival appearance since 1998. Works on the program exhibit the company’s wide range and prowess, including master choreographer George Balanchine’s challenging and technically precise Allegro Brillante set to Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky’s energetic “Third Piano Concerto No. 3”. The program also includes Tony Award-winning choreographer Christopher Wheeldon’s elegant Polyphonia, danced to György Ligeti’s complex and eerily melodious score, and Peter Martin’s elegant Barber Violin Concerto.
