DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM:
Company Premiere of Jerome Robbins' I’m Old Fashioned featuring Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth
Miami City Ballet is joined by two larger than life stars, Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth, dancing and gliding alongside Miami City Ballet dancers in Jerome Robbins’ stunning I’m Old Fashioned.
I’m Old Fashioned opens Hayworth and Astaire dancing a sparkling duet from the 1942 film You Were Never Lovelier. As they sail across a huge screen, the MCB dancers give new life to the original silver screen choreography as they interact with the film stars.
