Miami City Ballet Receives Largest Corporate Donation in Its History

Classic Arts News   Miami City Ballet Receives Largest Corporate Donation in Its History
 
Miami City Ballet announced on Monday (July 31) that it has received a major corporate donation, the largest such gift since the company was founded in 1985 by former New York City Ballet star Edward Villella. The grant was reported in yesterday's South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

The benefactor is U.S. Trust, an investment and banking firm based in New York, which recently opened an office in Miami. Neither party has disclosed the amount of the gift.

This fall Miami City Ballet becomes one of the tenants of the new Carnival Center for the Performing Arts in Miami. The troupe inaugurates its tenure there October 13-15 with a large-scale new production of Don Quixote, a company premiere. MCB also performs regularly at the Broward Center in Fort Lauderdale, the Kravis Center in Palm Beach and the Naples Philharmonic Center on Florida's southwest coast.
