American Ballet Theatre's 2014 spring season at the Met has a little bit of everything: knights in shining armor, exotic Indian temple dancers, dolls that come to life and doomed love affairs. Since 1940, ABT has graced the stages of the greatest venues around the world, creating a dance tradition that brings joy to old fans of ballet and creates new fans. This year's program starts with Don Quixote, a whimsical tale that explodes with one show-stopping performance after another, from the bravura dancing of the fiery toreador Espada to a colorful caravan of gypsies. Then it's off to the sweeping vistas and grand temples of mystical India for the great Russian classic, La Bayadere, a glorious epic of eternal love and godly revenge. After that, it's back to Europe for Coppelia, the perfect introduction to ballet. This fairy tale story introduces us to Coppelia, a beautiful doll so lifelike that she causes a lot of trouble between two young lovers. Finally, there's Kenneth MacMillan's dramatic masterwork, Manon, set to Massenet's lush score. This tragic romance soars to searing theatrical heights as the beautiful courtesan Manon chooses between the temptations of wealth and true love. Learn More

The cast was too disconnected from both the material and the audience. They blew several chances to draw us in.
Kind like watching a moving painting.
It could have been SO much more.
One of the cast members whispers FAR too loud to try to get someone to do something on stage and then nothing happens. He should have just addressed the audience and gotten a real volunteer.
Using eBay, Craigslist, and a performance specific website all elements of the performance ARE UP FOR SALE. The creators will offer “for sale” space within the performance to both individuals and groups which can be used for any purpose the purchaser desires. This may include statements of the purchaser’s opinions, jokes that tickle the purchaser’s fancy, pre-existing texts of his or her choosing, or stories or anecdotes from the purchaser’s life. In addition to the spoken material, the physical or non-verbal actions and all elements of the design will be available for sale. One might choose a particular image to be shown onstage, a costume for one of the performers, a sound cue to be played, or a gesture or sequence of movement. We will also offer product placement or other advertising opportunities to corporations, small businesses and groups
Democracy in America makes literal the so-called “market-place of ideas,” in which those with means purchase access to the privately-owned technologies of opinion-making and information dissemination, and those without money are the passive receivers of views which supposedly represent them.
