Hot on the heels of their seminal, seasonal The
Nutcracker, Miami City Ballet is offering yet another
fanciful fete for the tail-end of the winter season.
Running Feb. 10-Mar. 12, the world premiere of
Igor Stravinsky’s The Fairy’s Kiss as envisioned by
master choreographer Alexei Ratmansky is sure to be
another crowd-pleaser from this celebrated company.
Headlining a triple-bill including George Balanchine’s
Walpurgisnacht Ballet and Tony Award-Winning
Choreographer Christopher Wheeldon’s Polyphonia, the
Tchaikovsky-inflected score of Stravinsky’s masterpiece
is well-complemented by set and costume design from
world-renowned Scenographer Jerome Kaplan. With
such a star-studded cast and crew attached, it’s hard
to believe that tickets for this run starts at just $20;
