Miami City Ballet: PROGRAM TWO

January 16, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - January 17, 2016 @ 2:00 pm   |  
Au-Rene Theater at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts
| 20-$189

Choreographed in 1968 and set to Leo Delibes’ exquisite musical score, La Source vividly recreated the elegant milieu of 19th-century French ballet. As an example of Balanchine’s acclaimed “pink ballets,” this charming nostalgic work continues to enchant 21st-century audiences with its subtle beauty and bravura performances. Two couples – one classical, one modern – engage in a provocative study of choreography contrast and collision in Peter Martins’ stirring and quirky, Barber Violin Concerto, the excitement of which is enhanced by Samuel Barber’s neo Romantic Violin Concerto, one of the most melodically alluring and widely performed concertos of the 20th century. Set to Phillip Glass’ driving postmodern score, Twyla Tharp’s signature work, In The Upper Room, deftly fuses seemingly divergent dance esthetics. Modern dance’s forceful energy is juxtaposed with the finesse of the classical tradition, both fiercely surging towards a spectacular climax.
