Miami City Ballet: Program Two
Presented by Miami City Ballet
“THE GREATEST TRIBUTE HE COULD HAVE PAID TO MR. ASTAIRE… MR. ROBBINS HAS GIVEN HIM A GENUINE ROBBINS BALLET.” NEW YORK TIMES
Miami City Ballet is joined by two larger than life stars, Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth, dancing and gliding alongside Miami City Ballet dancers in Jerome Robbins’ stunning I’m Old Fashioned.
I’m Old Fashioned opens Hayworth and Astaire dancing a sparkling duet from the 1942 film You Were Never Lovelier. As they sail across a huge screen, the MCB dancers give new life to the original silver screen choreography as they interact with the film stars.
Balanchine famously called Fred Astaire ''the greatest dancer in the world'', and Astaire was reportedly honoured that Robbins had been inspired to create this work… From all sides, this delightful tribute to the Golden Age of Hollywood is big, glamorous and simply irresistible!
