According to the Wall-Street journal, ABT is officially leaving City Center and moving operations to the NY
American Ballet Theatre signed a three-year agreement to perform at the David H. Koch Theater, above, at Lincoln Center.
The game of musical chairs launched by New York City Opera last year when it left Lincoln Center is going at least one more round: America Ballet Theatre will announce Wednesday that it has signed a three-year deal to perform at the David H. Koch Theater, starting in October 2013 with a two-week season.
The change means that the company will terminate its fall seasons at New York City Center, on West 55th Street, which it began in 1997. It does not, however, affect ABT's eight-week spring season at the Metropolitan Opera House (also on the Lincoln Center campus), nor its run of "The Nutcracker" at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
