The Miami City Ballet’s Program Three includes The Fairy’s Kiss (World Premiere), Walpurgisnacht Ballet and Polyphonia. The Fairy’s Kiss is a major coup for MCB. A new narrative ballet by today’s most in-demand classical choreographer, Alexei Ratmansky. Hans Christian Andersen’s story of The Ice-Maiden inspired what is perhaps Stravinsky’s loveliest score – a tribute to Tchaikovsky. Walpurgisnacht Ballet features 24 girls stampeding across the stage – most of them in purple, their hair flowing – and a single man. Polyphonia confirmed Christopher Wheeldon’s reputation as one of the leading young choreographers of our time. Four couples are seen in ten classically constructed yet bracingly contemporary episodes that explore the turbulent and compelling piano music of the modern master Györgi Ligeti. Saturday and Sunday at 8 p.m. Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets range from $20 to $99.
