Offstage + Unbound: Episode 11 – An Interview with Lourdes Lopez, Miami City Ballet

In the eleventh installment of “Offstage and Unbound,” The Music Center’s President and CEO Rachel Moore chats with Lourdes Lopez, artistic director of Miami City Ballet. Over the course of a year, Lopez worked closely with designers Isabel and Ruben Toledo to create a newly redesigned George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®.

Lopez became artistic director of Miami City Ballet in September 2012, bringing with her a nearly 40-year career in dance, television, teaching and arts management. As a Soloist and Principal Dancer with New York City Ballet, she danced for two legends of the art form, George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins.
