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

This is a fabulous deal for alcoholics! I arrived at 6:50PM for 7PM showtime. Tables weren't set up yet, but we got drink tickets for the bar. Any drink was included, so we each got a signature (normally $14) cocktail. Quite strong! We seated ourselves around 7:15, show started closer to 8PM. Servers took our order for the main dish (choice of 3: pasta with lobster, roasted chicken, or mushroom risotto). They then passed out drinks to everyone, a variation on a Dark & Stormy. Arugula salads were next. Then a spiced rum & orange bitters drink. Then the entrees, then an alcoholic Arnold Palmer, and finally a shortbread/fruit & whipped cream dessert. All the food was actually quite good, and there was no way any of us were going to finish 4 very strong drinks!
Now for the show...it was loosely based on James Bond, with acting so bad it was humorous. There were many long breaks in the show (so the actors could learn their lines perhaps? We saw many rehearsing with scripts). There were a few burlesque numbers, One acrobatic duo stood out as quite talented.
So, 4 drinks, 3 courses, a few stripteases, and a fun night overall.
The menu for this event includes an appetizer, a choice between one of three entrees and dessert, in addition to three drink pairings. There is table service.
