Miami City Balletâ€™s annual gala this year had the distinction of being the first-ever gala hosted at Miami Beachâ€™s new cultural cornerstone the Rem Koolhaas/OMA designed Faena Forum. The exclusive black-tie affair showcased all 51 Miami City Balletâ€™s dancers in this exquisite and never-before-seen setting. Inspired by the much-anticipated world premiere commission of Alexei Ratmanskyâ€™s ‘The Fairyâ€™s Kiss’, the gala transformed the new Faena Forum space into a frozen fairy-tale evening with cocktails, dinner, dancing and surprises.
Four hundred notable philanthropists, together with community leaders and ballet aficionados had an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy the architectural wonders of Faena Forum alongside Miami City Ballet artists and dancers seated with table sponsors for dinner, mingle with guests and take to the dance floor to lead the party. Proceeds from the gala will support Miami City Balletâ€™s work both onstage and in our community, bringing the magic of the live performing arts to people from all walks of life. #IceKissedGala @MiamiCityBallet @FaenaArt
