American Ballet Theatre (ABT) returns to Chicago as an Auditorium Theatre Visiting Resident Company! Experience the full breadth of ABT’s acclaimed artists in this mixed repertory program, featuring both classical and contemporary ballet. The program opens with the breathtaking “Kingdom of the Shades” from the second act of Natalia Makarova’s landmark production of Marius Petipa’s La Bayadère, “one of the most famous and poetic expressions in all of classical ballet” (The Washington Post). The program continues with Antony Tudor’s one-act ballet Jardin aux Lilas, considered “a masterwork of contemporary ballet” (The New York Times), and closes with Twyla Tharp’s high-energy ballet/contemporary crossover piece Deuce Coupe, which “melds styles, but never loses its underlying groove” (The New York Times) and is set to music by The Beach Boys.
