Broadway and Ballet collide in Miami City Ballet’s final program of the season. The evening bridges the best of both worlds with Jerome Robbins’ Dances at a Gathering and George Balanchine’s Slaughter on Tenth Avenue! Ten dancers, live Chopin piano music, endlessly beautiful and original invention, Dances at a Gathering is a celebration of dance, dancers…and life. George Balanchine’s Slaughter on Tenth Avenue, taken from the hit Rodgers and Hart Broadway musical On Your Toes, is a story of gangsters, strippers and an attempted murder plot revealed just in time. Fast-paced, with tap dancing and talking parts, this is wildly entertaining dance.
Baseball All-Star Mike Piazza will make a cameo appearance as the gangster in Slaughter on Tenth Avenue. One night only! Friday, May 3, 2013.
