Dancers performance was great but absence of live orchestra is very disappointing. I just called about 2015 winter season performance and again it will be with recorded music. This is the reason we are not going to attend .

If you're going to be in Miami, or anywhere in South Florida, check this dance company's scedule. It's a terrific dance company.

...enjoyed "The Nutcracker" performed by Miami City Ballet. This is a good regional company. I was impressed. The performance was better than I expected it to be. The theater was nice, too.

This was the first ballet where I saw people actually putting their legs up onto the balcony railings during the performance. Of other annoying things worth noting are clapping every now and then when people just felt like it without taking no notice of music. The performance I came for was Nutcracker and even though there was an orchestra pit... More

Truly amazing performance of the classical ballet. The live orquestra was very good , the stage presentation and the dancing troupe and amazings skills and grace of the principal dancers. But I do miss the Edward Villela touch!!

This beatiful and traditional school seems not to care about visitors. Our previous emails were never responded and even after we were there, no visit was permitted. They had a few reasons, but not enough to dismiss a teenager who crossed the continent in order to have the experience.

This is the first time I buy season tickets with my daughter so we will see how it goes. Service when ordering the tickets was great as well as when we chose our seats. Very accommodating.

The ballet had developed an excellent reputation for quality and artistry. However, since the original director left the company, it has not been as great. Particularly affected have been the fun "barre" nights at the rehearsal space, which have now turned into lectures and not demonstrations, sadly.

Thank ABClady
