Miami City Ballet and The Cleveland Orchestra

Franz Welser-Möst, Music Director of The Cleveland Orchestra; Edward Villella, Artistic Director of Miami City Ballet

Miami City Ballet and The Cleveland Orchestra launched an unprecedented multi-year collaboration, beginning with a one-night-only performance. See the Music, Hear the Dancing took place at the Adrienne Arsht Center, Ziff Ballet Opera House in Miami and featured two ballets by George Balanchine: Symphony in Three Movements set to music by Igor Stravinsky and Symphony in C with music by Georges Bizet.

To celebrate this collaboration, an elegant benefit dinner was held immediately after the performance, on-stage at the Knight Concert Hall. The proceeds go to benefit both organizations.

Approximately 300 distinguished artists and guests attended the event, including the Artistic Director of Miami City Ballet, Edward Villella, and the Music Director of The Cleveland Orchestra, Franz Welser-Möst. The event was chaired by Jan R. Lewis and Dr. Margaret Eidson. The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation was the presenting sponsor.
