Northrop favorites since their first appearance in 1956, American Ballet Theatre celebrated our grand re-opening in 2014 with their beautiful Giselle. Five years later, they are back in a richly varied repertory program that showcases the passion, innovation and athleticism that the company is renowned for. Alexei Ratmansky’s Songs of Bukovina is set to music by Leonid Desyatnikov, full of folk-inspired choreography with a jubilant feel. Other Dances by Jerome Robbins pays homage to Chopin’s romanticism and the purity of classical ballet technique, while Twyla Tharp’s In the Upper Room, set to one of Philip Glass’ propulsive scores is 40 continuous minutes of sheer, exuberant motion.
