Has someone see the first performance of Miami city tour in Washington. They must dance Ashton's patineurs, Sylvia pdd, Slaughter on tenth avenue and later Jewels.<P>I was interesting by this company where dance Eric Quilleré, but perhaps doesn't he participate to this tour, seeing the fact he must repeat for his Mercutio with POB in next June and July.<P>

<B>Sparkling 'Jewels' From Miami</B> <P>Lisa Traiger previews 'Jewels' in The Washington Post <P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>IN THE 15 years since its founding, the Miami City Ballet has gone from zero to 60, a stunning "only in America" success story.<P>The company was created by artistic director Edward Villella, and its 46 dancers have so thoroughly assimilated the neoclassical style of George Balanchine that it is frequently hailed as the finest living repository of the master choreographer's legacy.<P>As startling as this may be for fans of Balanchine's home team, the New York City Ballet, the still-young Miami troupe has been noted for its verve, its feistiness, its energy, its sex appeal (Balanchine loved women and loved showing them off, too), its musicality and its fealty to the Balanchine legacy.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> <P><BR><A HREF="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A249-2001May31.html" TARGET=_blank><B>More...</B></A>

Sarah Kaufman on Miami City Ballet in "Jewels":<P><B>Miami's Dazzling 'Jewels'</B> <P>By Sarah Kaufman for The Washington Post <P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>The story is that George Balanchine was admiring the gems in Van Cleef & Arpels one day (not many choreographers like that around anymore, are there?) when artistic inspiration struck.<P>The result was "Jewels," the unprecedented evening-length, plotless ballet in three sections, each named for a precious stone. "Emeralds" has a watery impermanence, "Rubies" dazzles with its brazen glamour, and "Diamonds" is cold, bright and untouchable.<P>Just as the three sections exploit the many facets of their namesakes, they also show off distinct and varied facets of the art of ballet: Mystery and the unattainable. Sexiness and athleticism. Finely sculpted classical form.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR><A HREF="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A16794-2001Jun3.html" TARGET=_blank><B>More...</B></A>

Jordan Levin reports near the bottom of her Miami Herald article:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Miami City Ballet showed that the kudos it received at last September's Balanchine Festival in Washington were not just reflected glory from a glamorous event. MCB was back in the nation's capital from May 29 to June 3, as part of the Kennedy Center's regular season, and The Washington Post raved that ``Miami City Ballet danced brilliantly . . . intensely absorbing and laced with moments of glory.''<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.miami.com/herald/content/features/critics/dance/digdocs/043227.htm" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>
