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.

I travel worldwide and ballet is my passion. Of the companies in the USA, there is none I enjoy more than Miami City Ballet. Their technique is at the highest level and their winning, appealing style is remarkable. If you are in the greater Miami area anytime between October and May, check to see if they are performing. You will... More
