Slaughter on Tenth Avenue

Friday, November 8 through Sunday, November 10
Kravis Center for the Performing Arts
Presented by Miami City Ballet

George Balanchine’s Slaughter on Tenth Avenue headlines this program with a hilarious parody of hijinks and high kicks, gangsters and cops in this ballet about a tap dancer and the impossible stripper he falls in love with. Balanchine’s sassy and spirited choreography and Richard Rodgers’ tantalizing Broadway score open the season full of laughter in a 1930s speakeasy. Balanchine’s plotless masterpiece, Stravinsky Violin Concerto, bookends this program with Stravinsky’s timeless score setting the stage for all-out dancing and technique in its purest form. Balancing out the program is a tribute to the late Paul Taylor with his masterwork, Mercuric Tidings – a celebration of “body in motion” in this “exhilarating, blisteringly fast dance,” the Miami Herald acclaims.

Program:

  • Stravinsky Violin Concerto (Balanchine/Stravinsky)
  • Mercuric Tidings (Taylor/Schubert)
  • Slaughter on Tenth Avenue (Balanchine/Rodgers)
