ABT Live from City Center | A Ratmansky Celebration
About ABT Live from City Center | A Ratmansky Celebration
One of the great dance companies in the world, American Ballet Theatre (ABT) makes a much-anticipated return to City Center for a night at the ballet with works by acclaimed choreographer and ABT Artist in Residence Alexei Ratmansky—filmed live on the City Center stage.
ABT Live from City Center | A Ratmansky Celebration showcases many of the company’s renowned dancers in excerpts from The Seasons, Seven Sonatas, and The Sleeping Beauty, and the World Premiere of Bernstein in a Bubble—set to the music of legendary composer Leonard Bernstein. This new piece, Ratmansky’s first since March 2020, was recently created during a quarantined “ballet bubble” in Silver Bay, New York.
City Center has been an important home to ABT throughout the company’s 81-year history, hosting them first in the 1940s and most recently as the home of their regular fall seasons and frequent performances in Fall for Dance.
