American Ballet Theatre

75th Anniversary Season
World Premiere

"Once in a not too frequent while ... there comes along an evening that reminds you ... why you're in the theater in the first place, and why dance is not a luxury or a frill but a necessity of life. Such an evening was ...  American Ballet Theatre."
The Washington Post


Since 1940, American Ballet Theatre has created a tradition of passion, innovation, and athleticism that transcends cultural boundaries and touches the soul of ballet lovers old and new. “America’s National Ballet Company” returns to the Fisher Center as part of its 75th anniversary season, with new and classic works that demonstrate the elegance and spectacle of ABT’s unforgettable performances.
