I hadn't sat up in the balcony since my high school days, but 4th row front balcony wasn't bad. The Don Quixote pas de deux brought down the house (deservedly). Thanks! I'm going again tonight to see Othello!

Description

Dance at the Music Center proudly closes its fourth successful season with the return of one of the world’s most revered and innovative ballet companies, American Ballet Theatre (ABT), under the artistic direction of Kevin McKenzie.
p. ABT presents an opening night of repertory works by master choreographers including Balanchine, Petipa, and de Mille, showcasing the grace and power of its world-renowned dancers. A highlight of this engagement, ABT performs Lar Lubovitch’s full-length Othello.

Othello’s visually stunning set design combines massive set pieces with onstage projections to bring to life the unsettled and fragmented reality of Othello’s world. Elliot Goldenthal, famed composer of such films as Frida, Interview with a Vampire, Titus, and most recently at the Music Center, the LA Opera’s world premiere of Grendel, offers a score that is at times tumultuous and stormy and other times melodically serene.

Enrich your experience and join Elizabeth Kaye, distinguished speaker and author of the best-selling book American Ballet Theatre: a 25-year Retrospective for a 30-minute pre-performance discussion beginning one hour prior to each performance in the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion Grand Hall.
