About the show: "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue" is considered a classic piece in Miami City Ballet's repertoire, but with gangsters, strippers, an attempted murder plot and even some tap dancing worked in, it's anything but traditional. Taken from the Balanchine-choreographed Broadway musical "On Your Toes" and made into a full, standalone ballet in the 1960s, it's more fabulous on every viewing, says The New York Times. Piazza will play a gangster. Robbins' "Dances at a Gathering," another favorite for the company, is set to the music of Chopin.
