American Ballet Theatreís Studio Company will present two evenings of new works at The Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College, 68th Street between Park and Lexington Avenues, April 15 and 16 at 8 P.M. The program will include Heavenly Bodies by Daniel Baudendistel, Revelry by Robert Hill and Tea and Temptation by Brian Reeder, as well as Antony Tudorís Continuo.

Set to Ernst von DohnŠnyiís Variations on a Nursery Rhyme, Daniel Baudendistelís Heavenly Bodies features nine dancers representing the mythical temperaments of various planets in an imagined scene at Mount Olympus. The ballet has costumes by Katherine McDowell, lighting by Brian Sciarra and scenic design by Wendy Mark. It received its World Premiere by the ABT Studio Company at Indiana University on February 8, 2003.

Robert Hillís Revelry, set to a score of the same name by Lowell Liebermann, is a bravura pas de deux for Danny Tidwell and Laura Hidalgo. Featuring costumes by Zack Brown and lighting by Brian Sciarra, Revelry will receive its World Premiere at the Linbury Studio Theatre at Covent Garden in London on March 28, 2003.

Set to Franz Schubertís Piano Trio in E Flat, Brian Reederís Tea and Temptation is a witty exploration of the intricacies of the British class system inspired by the film Gosford Park. The ballet will receive its World Premiere on April 11, 2003 at Stony Brook Universityís Staller Center on Long Island.

Antony Tudorís Continuo, staged for the Studio Company by Donald Mahler, is set to Johann Pachelbelís Canon in D. Tudor created the ballet for six dancers in 1971 for his students at The Juilliard School. Continuo was reconstructed by arrangement with the Dance Notation Bureau, Inc.

Tickets for ABTís Studio Company at The Kaye, priced at $24 for general admission, $18 for members and senior citizens and $10 for students, are available by calling 212-772-4448.
