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 firstclass all the way. You are at Lincoln Center, the costumes, dancers,and music was just a pure delight to see and hear. I took my 15 year old daughter because she is turning 16 and Princess Aurora has her ball at age 16 and she was mesmerized. This in NY culture at its best and I highly recommend this.
A cornerstone of the ballet repertory, this charming fairytale is also one of the grandest spectacles of classical dance. Martins’ streamlined story focuses the audience’s attention on sensational choreography, combined with Tschaikovsky’s glorious score, lavish sets and costumes, and a cast of fanciful characters.
