Opening on October 18th, Miami City Ballet’s new season features a highly cinematic, theatrical presentation of captivating experiences that showcase the world-class artistry throughout South Florida and nationally. This is certainly the season you won’t want to miss!
Balanchine meets Broadway in this ground-breaking crime thriller. Slaughter On Tenth Avenue tells the story of a tap dancer who falls for a stripper, who has a heart of gold but she is in with the wrong crowd. As the lovers dance together late at night, her brutal gangster boyfriend is hiding in the shadows waiting for the moment to pull the trigger… will the police nab him in time or will she die in the arms of her one true love? Full of delightfully unsavory characters, hilarious hijinks and the thrill of new romance – you’ll love this sensual and moving blend of ballet, tap and jazz with a vaudeville heart. This program also includes Balanchine’s STRAVINSKY VIOLIN CONCERTO and a tribute to the late Paul Taylor with his MERCURIC TIDINGS, an ‘exhilarating, blisteringly fast dance.’ (Miami Herald).
