To spawn new passion for artistic collaboration by implementing a high-quality partnership between the renowned Cleveland Orchestra and the award-winning Miami City Ballet

In a rare artistic collaboration between a major orchestra and a major ballet company, the Cleveland Orchestra and the Miami City Ballet will perform together on Jan. 29, 2009 at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. The orchestra will play works by Stravinsky and Bizet, while the ballet dances to the compositions with choreography by Balanchine. The project will allow the organizations to assess the demand and financial support for future artistic joint ventures that could include commissioning new works.
