Fun Fact about Miami City Ballet's Edward Villella at the Auditorium

No comments:

Edward Villella is bringing his Miami City Ballet for the company's first Auditorium appearance October 2-4; however, it's not Villella's first time at the Auditorium Theatre.

On October 31, 1967, the Auditorium celebrated its grand re-opening after 36 years without performances. The performance was New York City Ballet, and Villella was part of the company! We're thrilled to welcome him back this fall.

Miami City Ballet tickets are currently available for groups of 10+ and renewing subscribers; call 312.431.2357 for details.
