Yo Quiero Ballet

Want to score major points with your lady this weekend and actually enjoy yourself at the same time? Take her to see the Cuban Classical Ballet of Miami’s season opener, Swan Lake, tonight at 8 or Sunday at 3 at the Fillmore.

The costumes and scenery were brought in from Chile's famous Ballet Santiago Opera House, and the work will be performed by Cuban prima ballerina Lorena Feijoo. She’ll be accompanied by recent imports to the Miami ballet scene, stars in their country and soon to be stars in ours -- Taras Dimitrio, Hayna Gutiérrez, and Miguel Ángel Blanco. Orquesta Sinfónica de la República Dominicana will perform the musical score.
Sat., Feb. 23, 8 p.m.; Sun., Feb. 24, 3 p.m., 2008
