Miami City Ballet Celebrated the World Premiere of NIGHTSPOT

A Twyla Tharp/Elvis Costello Collaboration


Elvis Costello Sang My Funny Valentine at the On-Stage Dinner



Miami City Ballet, the internationally acclaimed dance company under the artistic direction of Edward Villella, recently hosted a World Premiere Celebration at Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County. The event commemorated the first performance of a brand new work NIGHTSPOT created for Miami City Ballet’s dancers by world renowned modern dance choreographer Twyla Tharp, set to music by singer-songwriter Elvis Costello, with costumes designed by Isaac Mizrahi


The Celebration took place at the Sanford and Dolores Ziff Ballet Opera House immediately following a 7:30p.m. performance. The post show festivities included a Black Tie on stage dinner dance with honored guests Twyla Tharp and Elvis Costello and a simultaneous Party called “NIGHTSPOT Lounge” in the Peacock rehearsal room hosted by Partners en Pointe.


During the on stage dinner Elvis Costello sang an impromptu rendition of

My Funny Valentine, an unexpected treat for the guests at the party.


 Miami City Ballet’s Celebration Drawing took place on stage during the performance intermission. The drawing featured a remarkable array of gifts such as: a dazzling $50,000 Graff diamond necklace; a Neiman Marcus-Merrick Park $5000 shopping spree complemented by a stay at the Connaught Hotel – with butler service – in London; a one week voyage for two aboard the all-suite cruise line Silversea; and a 7-night stay at a five-star, luxurious penthouse condominium in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, courtesy of Dr. and Mrs. Murray Zedeck. Tickets for the drawing were available for $250 each with only 1,000 tickets being sold.  


Chairmen of the event were Tina Carlo, Gerri LeBow, and Rosalind Richter. Honorary Chairmen were Nancy Jean Davis and Ophelia and Juan Js. Roca. Honorary Co-Chairs were Betty Madigan Brandt and Diane and Irving Siegel. Co-Chairs were Nora Bulnes and Bobi and James Eroncig.
