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
Reviews & Ratings
The Paul Taylor Dance Company launches its inaugural Lincoln Center season with 19 Taylor dances, including three New York City premieres. The premieres include The Uncommitted with music by Arvo Pärt, which looks at individuals who fail to create meaningful, lasting connections with other people. House of Joy finds procurers bringing clients to a house of prostitution where a sailor, a very old man and a tough woman each get their pick, and a young, inexperienced client is beaten for not being able to pay. In the hilarious Gossamer Gallants, with music by Bedrich Smetana, the company presents a comedic view of insect mating rituals, in which the female of the species is often the stronger, predatory partner. The engagement also celebrates the 50th anniversary of Aureole,” the dance that launched a golden age.
The repertoire includes works from 1956 through 2012 and features such evergreen Taylor works as Cloven Kingdom, Company B, Esplanade and Piazzolla Caldera, plus the long-awaited return of Junction.
