Miami City Ballet’s 30th Anniversary Season Continues With Program Two, Featuring George Balanchine’s La Source, Twyla Tharp’s In The Upper Room And The Company Premiere Of Peter Martins’ Barber Violin Concerto

Miami City Ballet continues its landmark 30th Anniversary Season into the new year with Program Two, which opens on January 16 at the Broward Center in Fort Lauderdale.

Program Two showcases three choreographic masters: George Balanchine, Peter Martins and Twyla Tharp. Balanchine’s La Source, set to Léo Delibes’ exquisite musical score, enchants audiences with its re-creation of 19th-century French ballet elegance. Barber Violin Concerto is the company’s first work by long-time Ballet Master in Chief of New York City Ballet, Peter Martins. This thrilling company premiere is set to Samuel Barber’s neo-romantic Violin Concerto, one of the most alluring and widely performed concertos of the 20th century. And MCB is happy to celebrate Twyla Tharp’s 50th anniversary as a choreographer by reprising her signature work In The Upper Room - a study of modern dance’s power and energy juxtaposed with the finesse of the classical tradition, set toPhilip Glass’ driving postmodern score.  

MCB’s 30th Anniversary Season is presented in loving memory of R. Kirk Landon, a remarkable philanthropist, leader and beloved friend to Miami City Ballet.
