American Ballet Theatre, regarded as one of the world's finest dance companies, brings an evening of mixed repertory to the Kennedy Center. Michel Fokine's Les Sylphides is a romantic reverie with music by Chopin orchestrated by Britten. Tchaikovsky powers the D.C. premiere of ABT principal dancer Marcelo Gomes' Aftereffect. Based on A Midsummer Night's Dream, Sir Frederick Ashton's The Dream marks 450 years since Shakespeare's birth. For over 70 years, American Ballet Theatre has wowed audiences everywhere with their passion, innovation and athleticism. The New York Times called them "American ballet at its peak," and it's easy to see why. Learn More

The pre-show discussion with the Artistic Director was very interesting regarding the Company's formation, mission, dance style, and intended legacy. The dancing and choreography were fantastic! The music to the second piece was oppressive and greatly detracted from the wonderful dancers' performance! For the third piece on the Samba
again we loved the dancing, but this type of music does not lend itself to classical ballet. I lived in Brazil for many years and felt the music was a mismatch. Overall a great experience with a few musical adjustments to be made.
