Northrop Inside Out Grand Reopening: American Ballet Theatre
Friday, April 4, 2014 - 8:00pm
Choreography by Jean Coralli, Jules Perrot, and Marius Petipa
Music by Adolphe Adam, orchestrated by John Lanchbery
The epitome of Romantic ballet, Giselle is a poignant tale of unrequited love, remorse, and forgiveness. The role of Giselle, often described as the Hamlet of the ballet world, requires an exquisite stylist with daring dramatic and technical skills. American Ballet Theatre's unrivalled roster of international ballet stars brings Giselle's mystery and ethereal beauty vividly to life in this universally acclaimed production.
American Ballet Theatre is recognized as one of the great dance companies in the world. Few ballet companies equal ABT for its combination of size, scope, and outreach. Recognized as a living national treasure since its founding in 1940, ABT annually tours the United States, performing for more than 600,000 people, and is the only major cultural institution to do so.
After the performance, join us after the Grand Reopening Gala performance for a tented dance party on Northrop Plaza, featuring a live DJ, special performances, champagne, and dessert.
