They are using "Pre-recorded music" now so there is no Orchestra. What a rip for 100$ a ticket. How sad is the day that a beautiful ballet co like the MCB uses tapes.More

Thank you for your response. To clarify, Miami City Ballet does use live music for all of its repertory performances, unless a choreographer requests a taped version of a song. The company performs to taped music only for its productions of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker....More

Dancers performance was great but absence of live orchestra is very disappointing. I just called about 2015 winter season performance and again it will be with recorded music. This is the reason we are not going to attend .

If you're going to be in Miami, or anywhere in South Florida, check this dance company's scedule. It's a terrific dance company.
