This press release just in from ABT:

AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE AT THE GUGGENHEIM PRESENTS
ANTONY TUDOR AND AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE,

ABT Dancers to Perform Excerpts of Tudorís Seminal Works


American Ballet Theatre, in conjunction with the Guggenheimís Works & Process series, will present Antony Tudor and American Ballet Theatre on Sunday and Monday, September 28 and 29 at 8 P.M. in the Peter B. Lewis Theater at the Guggenheim Museum.

Former ABT Principal Dancer Susan Jaffe will lead a discussion exploring Antony Tudorís influence on the early development of American Ballet Theatre. Ms. Jaffe will be joined by Donald Mahler and former ABT Principal Dancer Michael Owen. Performances of Tudorís Continuo by the ABT Studio Company and the adagio from The Leaves are Fading by ABT Principal Dancer Amanda McKerrow and former ABT Soloist John Gardner will highlight the evening. Additionally, Mr. Mahler will rehearse ABT dancers in a scene from Tudorís masterwork Pillar of Fire, to be revived by the Company for its 2003 City Center season.

Each event presents excerpts of productions accompanied by discussion among the artistic collaborators, offering insight into the creative process.

Thanks, Dale :) I'd love to hear other comments, too. It sounded like an interesting evening -- and I'm always eager to read/learn about Tudor (I'd like to SEE some of him, too...)
