For those that missed the news, the Auditorium Theatre’s next dance season was announced this week. Who’s coming? Miami City Ballet, Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, Ballet Folklórico de México de Amalia Hernández, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, an MLK Day Jazz-Gospel Handel’s Messiah, and the Tschaikovsky Ballet of Perm. Of particular interest to me will be Cedar Lake’s Ten Duets on a Theme of Rescue by Crystal Pite and Miami City Ballet in Balanchine’s Symphony in Three Movements. We don’t get nearly enough black-and-white ballets up in this town, and it’s the part of Mr. B’s repertoire MCB excels at interpreting. Yay!
I’m okay with that.
