The Adrienne Arsht Center will host Family Fest, a free series featuring a family-friendly one-hour indoor performance on Saturday, Feb. 11.
A presentation of “Ballet for Young People” will be performed at the Ziff Ballet Opera House at 2 p.m.; The stand-by line will be available at 1 pm for those who do not have first access passes. (See below for link.)
Ballet for Young People is an interactive, behind-the-scenes look at the art of ballet. Learn how ballet began, what it takes to become a professional ballet dancer and how a ballet is created.
The program includes performance excerpts by the MCB School Ensemble, including the performance of Carnival of the Animals – The Swansong, a full-length ballet with more than 40 dancers on stage, set to the music of Camille Saint-Saëns (including his original Carnival of the Animals and other compositions) and choreographed by MCB faculty members, Rafael Maldonado-López and Geta Costantinescu.
First-Access Passes must be obtained for every member of your party. There is a limit of 4 passes per household. Those without a First-Access Pass must wait in the Stand-By Line beginning at 1 p.m. on the day of the performance. Patrons will be let in on a first-come, first-served basis as seats become available.
