More than one million dollars was raised at the opulent 31st Annual Gala of the Miami City Ballet. This year’s theme of the gala was an ice kissed fairytale. The inspiration for the theme was derived from the premiere of Alexei Ratmansky’s The Fairy’s Kiss, debuting on Friday, February 10th at Miami’s Adrienne Arsht Center. All proceeds of the fundraiser help support both the onstage productions and various community service projects by the Miami City Ballet.
