AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE TO PRESENT TWO PROGRAMS FOR

THE GUGGENHEIM’S WORKS & PROCESS SERIES,

APRIL 6 & 7 AND APRIL 27 & 28 AT 8 P.M.

American Ballet Theatre, in conjunction with the Guggenheim’s Works & Process series, will present A Look Again: ABT’s Corps de Ballet on April 6 and 7 at 8 P.M. and A Rose by Any Other Name… on April 27 and 28 at 8 P.M. in the Peter B. Lewis Theater at the Guggenheim Museum.

For A Look Again: ABT’s Corps de Ballet, ABT Ballet Mistress Susan Jones will lead an open rehearsal with members of the corps de ballet to demonstrate the detailed work that goes into perfecting ensemble performances. The first movement of George Balanchine’s Symphony in C and an excerpt from the Kingdom of the Shades scene from La Bayadère will be performed. In addition, senior corps dancers will discuss their time and experiences in the corps de ballet.

Moderated by Principal Dancer and Ballet Master Guillaume Graffin, A Rose By Any Other Name… offers insight into Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet by alternating actors’ readings of the play with excerpts of Kenneth MacMillan’s choreography of the ballet performed by ABT dancers.

The 18th anniversary season of the Works & Process series, produced by Mary Sharp Cronson for the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, features extraordinary contemporary music, dance, opera, and theater. Each event presents excerpts of productions accompanied by discussion among the artistic collaborators, offering insight into the creative process. The Guggenheim Museum is located at Fifth Avenue at 89th Street in New York City.

Tickets are $15 for general admission, or $10 for members of the Guggenheim Museum, ABT’s Dancer’s Circle or Golden Circle and for students and senior citizens. Tickets may be purchased at the Museum admissions desk, through the box office by calling 212-423-3587 or by email at boxoffice@guggenheim.org. The box office is open from 1 to 5 P.M., Monday through Friday. For more information about ABT, please visit www.abt.org.
