Michael Tilson Thomas, NWS’s Artistic Director Laureate, returns for the season finale of NWS’s 35th Anniversary Season, which features a special collaboration with Miami City Ballet (MCB). For years, MTT and Lourdes Lopez, MCB’s Artistic Director, have led these two cultural pillars of the South Florida community that have earned global recognition for their respective commitments to artistic excellence. This unique collaboration will be an opportunity to showcase both organizations as leaders in classical music, education and dance.
These performances follow NWS and MCB's acclaimed 2020 collaboration in celebration of Igor Stravinsky and George Balanchine, two icons of the 20th century whose decades-long friendship proved to be one of the most prolific artistic pairings of their time. Blending music and movement, the two cultural giants gave the world unforgettable productions and inspired students Michael Tilson Thomas and Lourdes Lopez, who now embolden the next generation of artists in our community.
