This exhibition highlights ABT's vibrant seventy-five year history with objects drawn primarily from the American Ballet Theatre Collection at the Library of Congress, as well as from the Library's extensive dance and music collections. In 1939, a group of dancers, choreographers, and producers associated with Russian-born Mikhail Mordkin's ballet company joined together to establish a new, innovative dance company they called Ballet Theatre. The company premiered in New York City on January 11, 1940, to great critical acclaim. Early in its organization, Ballet Theatre-renamed American Ballet Theatre (ABT) in 1957-began to tour, representing the United States both domestically and internationally.

Change is in the air and Figaro’s world is turning upside down. On the eve of the wily barber’s marriage to Susanna, Count Almaviva’s wandering eye has landed on the lovely bride-to-be. Servant and master go head to head, and even the Countess herself must spring into battle when she learns of her husband’s plans. Or is she embroiled in a liaison of her own?
From the breathless opening notes of the overture to the touching final curtain, Mozart’s comic masterpiece brilliantly bucks the conventions of his time to deliver an ageless message of love and forgiveness.
An LA Opera original production.
“A swirl of duality and dueling identities... uncanny, luminous beauty.” – The New York Times
“Visual wizardry, brilliant dance” – Seattle Times
In a rich and immersive environment of striking projections and kaleidoscopic paper sculptures, this evocative duet is an intoxicating theatrical adventure juxtaposing Zoe Scofield’s supple-edged choreography with artist Juniper Shuey’s swirling and lush visuals. At once primal and sharply balletic, Scofield’s movement alters our perception of the lithe dancers, with a mix of animalistic otherworldliness and virtuosity. BeginAgain smartly investigates the multiplicity of self, memory and perspective through two parallel solos that weave in and out of each other, beautifully performed by Scofield and Ariel Freedman (Batsheva Dance Company, Kidd Pivot). The artists reveal an intrinsic truth about oneself and the aspects of humanity that unite us.
Bach’s towering masterpieces, touchstones for violinists across the ages, inspire a multi-media event to refresh the soul.
Come for: The legendary violin-playing of Gil Shaham set to a video production by David Michalek.
And more: The Sei solo – “six alone” – as Bach labeled his set of three sonatas and three partitas for solo violin, are iconic landmarks of European culture, not just the violin repertory. They opened new worlds of expressive and technical possibilities.
