First time my wife had ever visited a ballet. The Arsht Center was beathtakingly beautiful. and the 3 ballets which began the season( 2 choreographed by Balanchine , and one of these to music by Tshiakovsky) were absolutely mesmerizing. All of the performers nc from Corps de Ballet up thru the Principals, were spot on , and the synchrony, of both hand,and leg movements, were frankly unreal. When the final curtain fell, I was breathless. A must see

The Arsht Center is a first-class venue and Miami City Ballet gives an excellent performance no matter what the program is. This company generates so much energy and brings a high level of understanding and musicality to every show.Go more than once on your trip!

They are using "Pre-recorded music" now so there is no Orchestra. What a rip for 100$ a ticket. How sad is the day that a beautiful ballet co like the MCB uses tapes.

Thank you for your response. To clarify, Miami City Ballet does use live music for all of its repertory performances, unless a choreographer requests a taped version of a song. The company performs to taped music only for its productions of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed and hope that someday we will be able to provide live music for all of our performances. We hope that you will join us for another performance that features a live orchestra.
