Passion and Grace
Arsht Center 2014-15
Passion and Grace
Miami City Ballet proudly presents the American premiere of Richard Alston's critically-acclaimed Carmen – a flamenco-fueled, modernist take on the classic tale of passion and betrayal by one of today's most important choreographic voices.

The 18th-century hymns and egalitarian beliefs of the Shakers were Twyla Tharp's inspiration for Sweet Fields – a joyous, ethereal celebration of innocence and simplicity.

George Balanchine's dazzling Allegro Brillante is a testament to the beauty, strength and grace of the human spirit, set to a vigorous Tchaikovsky score. As Balanchine once said, "it contains everything I know about classical ballet in thirteen minutes."
